Are you confused on how to prepare bids for commercial cleaning accounts? Bidding and estimating can mean walking the tightrope between not bidding high enough to make a profit or bidding too high and losing the account.  Walking that fine line and bidding correctly can have a huge impact on the success of your cleaning business.

This Ebook will show you how to bid, step-by-step. There is no one step form  or "cookie cutter" approach you can use to knock out a quick price.  Effective bidding requires time and effort on your part. This E-Book will walk you through the steps from the initial client meeting to how you put everything together into a professional looking bid packet.

This Ebook shows you how to:

  • do a walk-through to impress the potential client and get the information you need to put together a profitable bid
  • ask the right questions
  • create production rates for your cleaning company and learn how these rates affect the profitability of your accounts
  • estimate your costs so you know how much profit you'll make on the account
  • add profitability to your bid by adding specialized services
  • put together a professional looking proposal that will impress the client and make you stand out from your competition

There is more to bidding than taking a quick walk through a building and putting some numbers together - or worse yet, "winging it".  To make a profit in your cleaning business you must know specifics about the building, what the customer needs, and what your costs are.  Once you have that information in hand you'll be better prepared to put together a winning bid. 

Bidding & Estimating for Cleaning Companies has over 80 pages of practical advice you can start using immediately to prepare your cleaning bids.
