How to maximize efficiency with TurboBid's flat rate feature.

I wanted to share my experience using the new Flat Rate feature since it was launched. From the moment I started using it, I knew it was a game-changer. In fact, I've already created our first Flat Rate book to distribute to our residential service crew. It was incredibly easy to plug in our rates and have it ready to go.


One of the features that has been the most useful for me is the estimate pricing detail in proposals. It's exactly what my customers have been asking for in a proposal format, and it's so simple to use. Now, I can create quick and accurate proposals for small service jobs, with every task already broken out. This means my customers don't have to call back and ask for a breakdown, saving both them and me valuable time. Plus, it eliminates the tedious task of defending the total job price because they see from the start what the job will require.


I have to say, TurboBid is truly the best system I have come across. What sets it apart is the complete customization it offers. I never feel like I have to give up my manual take-off experience and let a machine do it, as some other software programs require. Instead, TurboBid has simply sped up every estimating task for me, providing greater accuracy and consistency.


But here's the real testament to the system's effectiveness - I have even made believers out of the old guys who never trusted any other systems. That's how good it is! And it's not just during regular working hours that TurboBid has been a lifesaver. Here it is, Sunday, and I'm quoting jobs with much less headaches.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for everything you and the TurboBid team have done. You have always come through for me when I needed help, and I can't thank you enough.


Clayco Electric Company, Inc. - North Kansas City, Missouri


How to improve your contracting business.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation for your program. Honestly, I believe it should be a "must buy" for any new contractors out there. Not only did it provide me with valuable insights into setting up my shop, but it also helped me think through my business in ways I hadn't considered before. Although I know this wasn't your main intention, it was an incredible bonus for me.


I also wanted to commend your exceptional customer service. Your patience and dedication in assisting me with my initial bids were truly remarkable. The hours you spent helping me work through them were invaluable, and I can't thank you enough for that.


Once again, thank you so very much for everything. Your program and customer service have truly made a positive impact on my business.


Clear Creek Electric, LLC - Mesa, AZ.


How to leave a testimonial on your website.

Is there a place on your website that I could log in or go to to leave a testimonial? As much as you've helped me it's the least I can do. I know you feel like it's your obligation to help, but it's also your selling point and a big one for someone like me, who is somewhat computer illiterate.


I wanted to reach out and express my gratitude for all the help you've provided me. You've been such a lifesaver, and I truly appreciate it. I was wondering if there's a specific section on your website where I can leave a testimonial? I believe it's the least I can do to show my appreciation.


I understand that helping people like me might be part of your duty, but it's also a major selling point for someone like myself who isn't very tech-savvy. Your website offers a wide range of material items and assemblies in the database, and I can even add my own. The auto upgrades and changeable labor units are fantastic features that make my life so much easier. Plus, the overhead calculator and labor rate calculator are absolute game-changers.


What sets TurboBid apart is its incredible flexibility. I can tailor it perfectly to fit my business needs and expenses. The bid package reports it generates are completely customizable, which is a huge advantage for me. And the best part? The price I paid was significantly lower than other programs on the market, and I didn't have to go through the hassle of attending a course to learn how to use it. The software is simple and user-friendly, which is why I'm still a loyal user.


Thank you once again for everything you've done. I'm truly grateful for your assistance.

Estimating for residential and commercial projects.

I wanted to reach out and share my experience with TurboBid, the estimating program I recently started using as a new contractor in the electrical business. While I'm not new to this industry, I knew I needed a program specifically designed for residential projects.


Prior to finding TurboBid, I explored other well-known estimating programs, but I found that they primarily catered to commercial material databases. However, TurboBid stood out because it offers the versatility to handle both residential and commercial estimating. But let me tell you, it's much more than just an estimating program.


One of the things I love about TurboBid is the ability to create a personalized and professional image for my company. With features like room-by-room take-offs, option pricing, proposal inclusions, and a defined contract pricing printout, I can show my customers exactly what they're getting. This level of transparency has been invaluable in building trust and credibility with my clients.


What's even better is the ongoing support provided by the TurboBid Team. They actively listen to their users and incorporate their ideas on the forum to continually improve the program and material database. It's great to be part of a community that values input and strives for constant enhancement.


In conclusion, I highly recommend TurboBid to fellow contractors, especially those looking for a comprehensive solution that caters to both residential and commercial projects. It has undoubtedly helped me showcase my professionalism and win over clients. Give it a try, and I'm confident you'll be as impressed as I am.

TurboBid will play a vital role in our ongoing success.

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to express my gratitude for creating TurboBid. I have been searching for a reliable estimating software for our single, custom, town homes, Multifamily, and commercial projects, and TurboBid has exceeded my expectations.


I have had experience with various estimating software in the market, including Accubid, Timberline (now Sage), and EBM, but none of them were suitable for residential applications. That's why I was pleasantly surprised to find that TurboBid not only met our needs but also offered such incredible detail and flexibility.


I must admit, I initially expected to pay a much higher price for a program that offers so much functionality. TurboBid has truly been a bargain for us, and I am thrilled with the excellent product we now have in our arsenal.


I particularly want to commend you on the labor section of TurboBid. The inclusion of Corp Burden is a game-changer. So many people overlook this crucial aspect when calculating labor costs, but TurboBid has it covered.


Thank you once again for developing such a fantastic tool. My son and I are truly impressed, and we're confident that TurboBid will play a vital role in our ongoing success.

I wanted to take a moment to commend Bill for his unwavering commitment to improving the program. It's clear that he genuinely cares about his customers' needs and is dedicated to providing the best possible experience. And I can't forget to mention Mike, who has been incredible in giving this excellent program the attention it truly deserves.


Let me just emphasize that as a small shop with only 2-3 employees, I consider myself the epitome of the "little guy." And TurboBid has truly been a game-changer for us. It has given us the tools and insights we need to compete with the big players in the industry.


Thank you for developing such a fantastic program and for your continuous efforts to make it even better. I am beyond satisfied with my purchase and will definitely be recommending TurboBid to others in the industry.


Dukes Electric - Wasilla, Alaska


An affordable estimating program that will boost your business.

I wanted to reach out and share my experience with TurboBid, the estimating program I purchased a few months ago. I understand that when you're just starting out, investing in an estimating program may seem like a luxury. However, it's important to view it as a tool, much like an electric screwdriver.


Sure, you can still get the job done without it, just like you can with a manual screwdriver. But when it comes to running a business, having an electric screwdriver is undeniably better, even if it may be more expensive.


I spent a considerable amount of time researching various software options before choosing TurboBid. Not only were many of the alternatives more expensive, but they also lacked the well-structured setup that TurboBid offers.


So, if you're contemplating whether or not to invest in an estimating program, I highly recommend TurboBid. It has proven to be a valuable asset for my business, and I believe it can greatly benefit yours as well.

How to streamline your estimating process with TurboBid.

I used to dread estimating jobs as an electrical contractor. It seemed like I was always losing money or missing out on opportunities. That all changed when I discovered TurboBid.

However, after trying out the trial version, I was convinced within an hour and immediately purchased the full version. TurboBid has completely transformed my business, turning losses into profits and helping me win bids.


What I love about TurboBid is how it simplifies the entire estimating process. Once you have it set up, it's quick and painless. And the best part is the customer support. I'm the type of person who hates asking for help, but TurboBid's support staff has changed my perspective. They went above and beyond, even dedicating an hour of their time on a Sunday to guide me through the program.


I can't sing enough praises for TurboBid. In today's competitive market, if you want to stay ahead as an electrical contractor, I highly recommend getting on board with TurboBid. Trust me, it's the program that will make all the difference!

Are you still estimating the old-fashioned way?

I wanted to share some thoughts with you about the tools and equipment that electrical contractors invest in when starting out. While they may spend thousands of dollars on these essentials, it's surprising that they often hesitate to spend anything on estimating and accounting software. In my opinion, these software programs are actually the most crucial tools for any electrical contractor.


Recently, I've been on a quest to find the perfect estimating program. I've tried various options, ranging from free to quite expensive, but none of them truly satisfied my needs. That was until I came across TurboBid. This software not only simplifies the entire estimation process but also automates it, from the initial take-off to submitting the bid proposal.


What sets TurboBid apart is its exceptional value for money. The program is priced affordably and, in my experience, it more than pays for itself in time savings and increased profitability. With TurboBid, you can estimate jobs in a fraction of the time it would take manually, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.


To further enhance your estimating skills, I highly recommend combining TurboBid with Mike Holt's Illustrated Guide to Electrical Estimating. This powerful combination will provide you with the knowledge and tools necessary to excel in your estimating endeavors.


I wanted to share this recommendation with you because I genuinely believe that TurboBid and Mike Holt's guide can make a significant difference in your business. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like more information.

Safelectric LLC - Mechanicsville, Maryland


The following is a post from Mike Holts' forum.

I use Turbobid and I can't say enough good things about it. Once you get it set up right its definitely the best estimating program money can buy. Its reasonably priced and the support you get once you buy it can't be beat. I bought it about a year ago and I think it was one of the best business investments I have made.

Wattcom Electric - Oshawa, Ontario


TurboBid to the rescue!

Just wanted to give you a quick update on my experience with the TurboBid. I must say, I am thoroughly enjoying using it. Not only is it incredibly user-friendly, but I find myself discovering new things about it on a regular basis. It has truly become an invaluable tool for our contracting division.


One of the key benefits I've experienced is gaining access to competitor bids on various projects. Interestingly, we have never been the highest bidder and sometimes even managed to secure projects as the lowest bidder. Most of the time, our bid price lands somewhere in the middle, which allows us to stay competitive with other contractors in the market. It's worth mentioning that many of them are still using ConEst, which we found to be quite cumbersome and inefficient. This just goes to show that your program is truly outstanding.


Thanks again for providing us with such a great program. I can't wait to see what other exciting features and benefits it has in store for us!

Try TurboBid and revolutionize your bidding process!

I just had to reach out and share my excitement about TurboBid with you. This product is absolutely incredible, and the customer service is second to none. I spent a considerable amount of time researching different options before choosing TurboBid, and it was definitely the right decision.


One of the things that really stood out to me was the fact that TurboBid offers an actual software package, not just an online program. It's so refreshing to have the convenience and reliability of a software that I can access at any time. I can honestly say that TurboBid has become an essential tool for my small one-person shop.


Before using TurboBid, I used to rely on my own calculations and estimates, but I quickly realized that there were always things I overlooked. Those small details, like screws and unexpected drilling, ended up eating into my profits. But with TurboBid, I no longer have to worry about that. I simply input the job details into the software, and it gives me an accurate and profitable bid. It may not always be the cheapest bid, but it's always the right bid for my company.


To put TurboBid to the test, I did a few jobs and compared the estimated labor hours with the actual hours. I was amazed at how close the estimates were! This software has truly revolutionized my business and made it much more profitable. In fact, it paid for itself after just a few bids.


I also want to give a special shout-out to TurboBid's customer service. When I had an issue, the Vice President personally worked with me to resolve it. That level of service is truly exceptional and sets TurboBid apart from the rest.


If you're still on the fence about which bidding software to choose, I highly recommend giving TurboBid a try. You won't be disappointed.
