When I want to submit a bid for a commercial account; is my bid sheet suppose to have some kind of format? I have my own using a template from microsoft word that I made fit my needs. It works fine for me with my residential customers. But I don't think that it is something that i want to be using to give to a property manager or using to submit bids. It doesn't seem fit for that.

I'll try to put in up here so you can see it. Maybe it just needs to be modified a little. Its kind of small.

Can the people that have commercial accounts give some tips on what kind of format it should follow or show us what your bid sheet looks like.

I like the bid/estimate form that comes with the Gopher Software. I know there are also blank forms you can find on the web.

Here is a screen shot of the bid form if you can't open it.

Here's a screenshot of mine. I just do a basic list with prices.

Does anyone else have a bid sheet for commercial bids that they can post so I can see what they are supposed to look like? I want to know if their is a proper format to follow.
I want to start giving bids on small commercial properties.

I have a good example, but it is Microsoft Word and I cant figure out a way to display it in a post. I cant upload it to photobucket. Help?

Can you post it and attach it?

Don't do a quick post. Use "add reply". Then at the bottom you can browse to search for something to attach.

I dont know why I was overlooking the browse button. Thanks

Thanks Brandon!

Here is a screen cap of it. Remember if you don't have Microsoft Office, you can download a free program called openoffice.org to open it.

I think the form brandon has put up reads and looks more professional. But all that legal wording is hard to read. I guess you get used to it after a while.

I see not to many people have any ideas for me on this.
I have a little better idea now though of how to make one up.

It is easier to read when its printed.

Yea I scaled it down a bit to fit it on the screen.
