Re: Estimating With Excel For The Small Contractor YouTube

I am a newbie to but an experienced tradesman for over 15 years. In the past 4 years I made the move to owner/ operator. I am greatful for this platform and for posts like yours specifically because they are tremendously helpful. As anyone knows, how hard staring out can be, it can also be challenging because there’s only 24 hrs in a day and not a second more. To sum it up thanks for helping me utilize a dormant program in my pc that can potentially help me be more efficient and successful in my business.

Re: Estimating With Excel For The Small Contractor YouTube

Excel is a great program and non of the purpose made estimating programs come close for flexibility or price. I use planswift for take off and quickbooks for accounts, excel is the link between the 2 to organise and track the data. Ive wasted thousands on different all in one solutions and non of them worked for me, maybe they would if you had a rigid way of working but im a subcontractor so have to be flexible to the main contractors format. If you struggle putting a sheet together or want something very complicated to set up try people per hour. Ive had a couple written with vba code and it only cost me £80-£100 each but make sure you know exactly what you want first or you will be paying for re writes when you realise after a few weeks its not how you wanted it.

LOL... On the upside a resurrected zombie thread popped up in my email this morning and got me back on the forum.
