Estimating Bidding Jobs Based On True Costs #LS115

Sat. July 15| 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM | A210 - A212

Most landscape companies do not use a cost-based estimating system. There are a number of different pricing systems that include a material multiplier, fair market price, unit pricing, and the ever-accurate "guesstimate." It's critical to understand your direct costs, how much overhead to recover, and how much profit your company needs to succeed. From there you can put together stronger bids that translate into better business. (Eligible for 1 LA CES credit)
