The number one reason to get a construction estimate with Digital Estimating is transparency. This is not an easy industry. Every person in construction is looking to make a quick buck however they can. If subcontractors are allowed to overbid a project, they will. If GC’s are allowed to take advantage of developers, they will. We keep people honest. It’s one of the reasons that I am passionate about this business.
Everyday we start by reminding our estimation staff of the importance of their work. It’s easy as an estimation firm to lose sight of the end product. Most of our staff never see the actual work being done. Yet, we maintain focused and keep our fiduciary responsibility. We understand that you are entrusting us with the takeoff and estimates of your business. We honor that trust.
This relationship is key to our long-term success as construction estimators. We strive to add notes, descriptions, and as much detail as humanly possible in our final deliverables. Our goal is for you to be able to see our work with no questions. What is the point of a confusing estimate.
Battling The Competition
We know our competition in the marketplace. There are hundreds of outsourced construction estimators. They live mostly in India and Pakistan. The average monthly salary in Pakistan today is $350/month. Against these odds, we beat them out every time.
We charge nothing upfront. We know that you will want to pay us because most of our clients are repeat customers. Our competitors are charging half upfront because so many clients are refusing to pay them for the junk product.
We spend months training new staff members. It doesn’t matter their experience coming into the firm. We maintain our quality controls. Your estimate or takeoff won’t be done by a random guy off the streets. That’s not an honest business practice.
Price isn’t as important as value. Our high quality, while still affordable, is exactly what clients are looking for.
In a market where everyone is taking advantage of you, we stand out. That honesty and integrity evolves into dependability. Send us a set of plans, or ten. We have clients sending dozens of plans at a time and we don’t drop any of them. We deliver on the date requested, before they are due, with accuracy.
I know the game. I’ve built houses and small commercial buildings. Half the job of management is chasing down people trying to make sure they do what they say. There is chasing us. We are already doing what you needed.
