View Full Version : Quoting jobs
11-18-2006, 01:20 PM
Question for project manager/shop owners out there.When you are asked to quote work and you do not directly employ electricians to do the installs, do you have a percentage that is added to the amount of controllers that are installed or do you get quotes from your subs before turning in bids.I observe how fast this buisness moves and how people want bids done on such short notice i cant see how anyone could properly quote out jobs without doing some guessing.TIA

I use rules of thumb given to me by my subs. X$ per VAV, etc... I know what my subs charge hourly, and I usually know how long it should take them and I will then come up with my own number, if I get the job I will find the hungry sub and tell them how much I will pay them to perform the task, which so far has been above reasonable. If you use the same subs over and over, you will get better at it.
