So which do you give?
I usually print at home a predesigned est. then fill in the price on the spot.
You didn't have a spot for "Both" so I chise what I normally do. I write it out on a two part memo pad I picked up from staples. It's on a coil binder so it makes a great book to refer back to. If it's a current customer and they call me up on the phone and want a specific estimate for work, then I do it on the computer and send it to them.
My hand writing is so bad, I always use the computer. I have both a home pc and a laptop but I almost always come home and use the home pc then mail it out the next day.Another reason for the pc is so that I have a back up of EXACTLY what I sent the customer so there are no difference in what we have agreed upon.
None of the above..I do it on the computer and e-mail it in a file to my potential customer or I hand deliver with an appointment made with the client to do so..sometimes I will drop it off..I never mail my estimates
Ive done that also Sheshovel. Kind of depends on the customer, some are fine with it mailed and then some you need to come back to the customer with it i hand. I dont know, maybe its like trying to sell it to customer. Usually I ask the customer if they would like for me to mail the estimate to them or would they like for me to drop it by their home.
Landscape estimates are printed at home and delivered to perspective client in person, all other service estimates are hand written and given or left at property.
edit-hit it twice
That would be a handwritten estimate.
