Estimates are crucial in planning your budget, they are a statement of the approximate charge for work to be done, submitted by a business firm ready to undertake the work.
In order to get a more accurate approximate estimate, you’ll need to provide the following:
- A detailed list of what the end “product” is expected to be or what you want to accomplish. This lets us know what you want and helps us stay on the same page.
- Any and all support info at the time of the estimate. It can be difficult to build changes into an estimate, so providing everything you can when the estimate is requested helps you get the most accurate estimate.
- A timeline that provides for adequate time to complete the work.
Estimates are calculations of what time/monies will be needed to fill a blank page. Just like filling this blank page it is not always that easy!
