Email your Construction Quote
If a customer phones you asking for a price, don’t just provide them with the price over the phone. You can take it one step further and send them a professional, detailed quote that reflects your attention to detail and professionalism with contractor software. By utilizing contractor software, you can capture all of the customer’s relevant information and offer to email the construction quote so they have a record to reference. Emailing your quote will showcase your professionalism, your dedication to customer service, and will help you stand out from the competition. By collecting customer information and emailing quotes with contractor software, you’re also able to easily follow up with your customer, which is a great way to win more jobs.
Writing a High-Quality Quote
Now we know that construction quotes should be emailed to clients, but what should be included in a construction quote? The key information that your construction quote should contain includes:
- Company Name – For your company to stand out, potential customers need to know exactly who you are. Make sure that you include your company name and, if possible, include your company logo on all quotes.
- Contact Information – Make sure that your contact information is clear and easy to find. For your customer to take action on the quote, they need to be able to contact you, so make it as easy as possible for them.
- Identify Line Items – A well-written quote will help your customers understand what you are providing and what they are getting. Customers want to know what they are paying for, so list out each product and service with the associated price.
- Client Specific Notes – If the quote is valid for a specified amount of time, or there are special details that your customer needs to know, be sure to include this information in the quote so there is no confusion. Your client will appreciate extra attention to detail.
Contractor software takes the guess work out of creating high-quality construction quotes.
