Not only can you use TurboBid to estimate new construction projects, you can also use it for smaller jobs like service and small remodeling projects. By using flat rate pricing, you have the ability to dramatically increase your profit margins. We highly suggest that you get away from time and material work. Customers generally don't like it and your profit is limited. Use flat rate pricing to give your customers an upfront price. TurboBid includes thousands for flat rate assemblies that use a realistic amount of time to complete the task in a service call or remodel environment. You will almost always beat the labor hours. Every minute that you beat the labors hours by is additional profit.
