Features You Must Include on Your Your Free Estimate Template

There are several important features you should add to our free estimate maker. Our goal is to save you as much time as possible and help streamline your business practices. Consider using the following features when you generate estimates.

  • Business Information - Your estimate should have all of your business's relevant contact information included. This means your:
    - Business name - ABN - Address - Phone - Email or fax

  • Price Breakdown - The price breakdown is huge for an estimate. You should list any and all costs associated with performing the job. If it's construction, you'd put the labor costs, materials, and any necessary inspections or permits. The goal is to get the estimate as close to the total costs as possible.

  • Schedule- If your customer wants specific materials, the estimate should also include the projected order and delivery date. This will help the customer understand the project's duration and costs.

  • Terms and Conditions- List how long the estimate remains valid for with any terms and conditions you have. You can make this as simple or complex as needed. If there's anything special for the project, list it.

  • Payment- How would you prefer your customer to pay you? Do you have certain payment methods you don't accept? What about discounts? List all of this in the payment section.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When should you use an estimate?

A: Estimates are valuable if a customer would like to know a general price point for your products or services. If you're not sure of the job site or scope, estimates are a great tool to help you come up with a realistic price point.

Q: What's the difference between an estimate and a quote?

A: A quote is legally binding, while an estimate isn't legally binding. If you send a quote, that's the price the customer will pay for the job, regardless of what happens. An estimate gives you more flexibility.

Q: What happens after you issue an estimate?

A: The customer can decide to accept the estimate and contact you for a quote. Many customers use estimates to see which company offers the products or services they need at the lowest price, so they request them when they start shopping around.

Awesome awesome awesome. I can't say enough of how user-friendly this app is in regard to sending estimates and invoices and the ability to pay from the electronic invoice

Best billing app I have ever used. My start with this app was shaky because the way explained on the App Store it would be billed monthly but they removed the entire years worth from my account which was low at the time. I was impressed by their rapid response and willingness to help me and keep me as a customer. I am glad I stuck around because it turned out to be the best app I have used for billing and recommend it to anyone with a business regardless of size or industry.
