ELECTRICAL ESTIMATING MANUAL©
"A Step by Step Guide to Electrical Estimating"
by Larry Singletary
purchaser of my book, you will learn what I have researched
and condensed into an easy-to-understand method of estimating
electrical contracts. It is my hope, that the information supplied
in my handbook will prevent potential errors in calculations
and will allow you or your business to be more profitable on
a daily basis. An instructor once said, "There are too
many electrical contractors bidding on work who lack the true
knowledge of costing. They are unaware of the many
of estimating, and overlook many of the details which will determine
profit or loss on any given project." This same instructor
commented, "I wish there was a practical guide for estimating...that
was easy to read and quickly understood."
the instructor's words were my motivation to take the time I
have in producing my manual. Another reason I'm sure, is the
fact that I have been there. I've been the one who had to make
instant judgements in order to meet a bid deadline. Back then,
I often wondered..."WHAT IF?"
LINE...these important two words must spell P-R-O-F-I-T,
or you will not stay in business. In order to make this so,
you must consider variables such as COST OF MATERIAL, LABOR,
DIRECT / INDIRECT JOB EXPENSES, and many more. In my book, we
will touch on many of the variables which will determine your
final bidding price.
book, complete with actual samples
of bid jobs, includes numerous professional tips written by
a professional in the field.
