What is a flooring estimate template?
An estimate template is a blank copy of your estimate or quote form that you use as an outline to create more detailed quotes for your prospects after a consultation.
You can find templates as fill-in PDFs, Microsoft Word or Google Docs, Excel or Google Sheets spreadsheets, free estimate tools, or even software like Jobber.
The point of the template is to have a blank form that you can quickly fill out during or after a consultation with a lead. It helps you avoid filling out the same information over and over again (like procedures and protocols, terms, payment periods, or contact information) before handing it over to your client.
It also helps your prospect get an understanding of what’s involved in the project they’re interested in hiring you for. When you can offer your leads a clear estimate or quote, they get a better understanding of your services and your level of professionalism.
Do you need a quote or estimate template?
To make things simple, we recommend having one flexible template that you can use for estimates, quotes, and invoices. That way, you can keep information consistent across the board, and easily convert your final copies as you move through the journey of working with your client.
You can always change the information inside the template by saving a copy of the original and editing it along the way.
How to find the right template to grow your business
The quote template should be flexible enough to allow you to send custom, detailed, and professional-looking quotes to your clients. It shouldn’t force you to constantly create a new quote outline for every single consultation appointment call you have.
The template should include helpful information for your team as well as the client. That way:
- You have all the account information on hand if you ever need to return to the jobsite.
- You can easily reference past services, materials, and equipment because they are included in the invoice.
- Your client has a solid understanding of the services that were discussed during the consultation and their cost.
- Your client knows your service warranty and terms and conditions because they are stated on your quotes and invoices.
- Your client knows how to contact you if they ever need your services again, or would like to refer you to their friend.
Why should you use templates?
- A consistent format helps you stay organized, and account for all necessary information every time.
- They reduce room for error by reminding you about mandatory fields you need to fill out.
- Digital quotes and estimates help you look more professional than hand-written quotes that were written in your car right after an appointment.
- They save time by allowing you to simply fill in fields without additional work.
- A copy of a clear quote helps you track and measure your projected accounts receivable.
- They help you keep track of your rates and prices in case you need to make changes to improve your margins in the future, or if you need to change your rates for the invoice.
- They help you get paid the proper amount on time––especially if your payment terms are on them.
- You can send them off to your client using a method (like email) that works for both of you.
