What is a landscaping quote template?
A landscaping quote 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 quoting 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. 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 understand what’s involved in the project. When you can offer your leads a clear estimate or quote, they get a better understanding of your services and your level of professionalism.
Why should you use an estimate template?
- A consistent format helps you stay organized and account for all necessary information every time. Plus, it easily converts over to an invoice for later.
- They save time by allowing you or your techs to simply fill in fields without additional work.
- A copy of a clear quote helps you track and measure your projected accounts receivable as well as your margins.
- They keep your office, team, and technicians organized.
- They help your client set realistic expectations. When your quotes are clear and accurate, your client knows exactly what to expect if they decide to hire you.
- You and your client will be on the same page if they have any questions before signing on with you.
