    For those ignorant like me of not knowing what a bid sheet is, please explain:
    Things like?
    1)Price of materials
    2)Your hourly wage
    3)Your experience of that kind of job
    4)Gas to and from job and runs to the different stores
    5)Cost of gas and consumables
    6)What your competition charges (depending where you live)

    Am I close?

    Default Hang on a bit

    If you can hang on a day or two I'll get our estimator to scan one of ours and post it here for you to copy or get ideas.

    Just go to an Office Depot or Staples and they will probably have one that you can use for job bidding.

    Here's an example of what I use. Now mind you, I'm not a professional welder so I don't know if there's something you're supposed to do, but this is how I do it for metal, or concrete or computer work, etc.

    Default Here ya go..

    This is our residential estimate form (three parts) 1 for customer. 1 for office file and 1 for our estimators file. Again I'm not a computer pro but I know that our computer (office nerd) can cross out our name so you can just copy your info where ours is. Maybe he can even put yours in?

    Anyway, here you go...
