Contractors who purchase a project for bidding from our freelance estimators also receive a spreadsheet that allows them to adjust prices for materials and labor if needed.

Furthermore, the spreadsheet may provide a rough estimate of labor requirements for the project. Please note that the layout and content of the spreadsheets may vary depending on the vendor selling the pre-qualified takeoff for bidding.

Additionally, contractors who purchase a project for bidding from freelance vendors receive the project plans and markups, along with a summary of the scope provided by the estimator.

However, it is recommended that contractors carefully study the documents and spreadsheets to become familiar with the purchased project.

Alternatively, some freelancers may offer extras for convenience, such as attaching their logo with clarifications, inclusions, exclusions, and alternates for bid to the general contractor, subcontractor, real-estate developer, homeowner, or builder, for an additional fee.

Pinch Estimating's service saves contractors time and resources in the bidding process. Instead of performing the necessary work themselves, contractors can focus on the bidding process, making it quicker and more efficient.

The ability to adjust material and labor prices is another significant advantage for contractors. This flexibility allows them to account for changes or unforeseen circumstances during the project. Contractors can add local sales tax on materials, markup the project total, and include waste percentages on items, granting complete control over their budget. This control facilitates informed decision-making and ensures profitability.

Furthermore, contractors receive the project plans, markups, and a summary of the scope from the estimator. This understanding allows for accurate bidding and better estimation of resources and project completion time.

In summary, Pinch Estimating's service offers numerous benefits to contractors bidding on projects in various CSI trades. The fixed price purchase model, along with the ability to adjust material and labor prices, add local sales tax, and receive project plans and markups with a scope summary, empowers contractors to maintain control over their budget, make informed decisions, and estimate project requirements accurately.
