Ballpark bid


#1

just from what you can see in these two pictures what would be your ballpark for exterior only.


#2

What price have you come to so far? Do you know how many days it would take to do this job?


#3

I honestly think I could do it in a day by myself! That said let’s say I did lift rental plus $800 for a good income. This is clearly not an $800 job even if I can do it in a day. This is the problem I have with bidding large commercial! There is jobs out there that if I quoted by time my price would be so low I would probably scare them because the actual job it comes out to be like three times my hourly rate.


#4

How many panes?


#5

I don’t count panes on large commercial. I just don’t see how anyone can go okay there’s a 125 three-story panes. Some of them can be done with a water fed Pole. Some of them will need cleaned out of a boom lift because of the deep ledge so I will charge X per pane. I don’t see how a person could assign a dollar per pane on large commercial to yield a specific hourly rate.


#6

“Experience” would be your answer


#7

I got the job and they said “I was the most professional” and they have no desire to price shop me and I was not the cheapest or the most expensive


#8

I’ve had the opposite experience.The break down on pricing is crucial for most upper clients. Right on man that is an awesome job congratulations.


#9

I could certainly see that! In my experience landing large commercial has been all about personal connection with the contact person and communication not price.
