: We'll help you get TurboBid set up and then we'll complete your estimates for you. Think of us as your own on-call estimator. We'll meet online to go over the estimate's scope, prints, etc. so that we can provide you with a quote to complete the estimate.
Next, we'll complete the estimate on a copy of your actual TurboBid database. This is where we differ from other estimating services. Since we both are using TurboBid, you can send us a copy of your TurboBid database (There are security settings that will prevent us from seeing your other estimates). Since your database will already be set up to include your company information, labor, material, overhead, etc., we simply complete the take-off and then send your database back to you. It's no different than if we were an estimator in your office.
When the estimate is completed, we'll meet again in a screen sharing session to go over the estimate. If you're satisfied, we'll send the database containing the completed estimate back to you. Keep in mind that by having us complete the estimate on a copy of your TurboBid database, you retain control over the estimate. You can review the estimate and make adjustments if needed.
