I have many years of estimating experience, and I use the Shop Ware estimating system, which was designed especially for precision sheet metal estimating. The customer will receive detailed pricing for assemblies as well as individual parts and items. Hardware items will be reported with actual cost and vendor identification.
Material and Finishing cost will be based on my best estimate and should be verified by the customer as these costs can vary by location and customers volume of purchasing. My Quotes have a 30% general markup, 10% material mark up and a 5% sales commission built in. The Estimating system can be adjusted to match the values used in your company.
I have Fabritrak experience for on site estimating.
