In this blog, I want to discuss why, in my opinion, it’s a superior option to outsource your thermal insulation estimating rather than having in house insulation estimators.
I know why because I was the insulation estimator for my own company, Chase Insulations for a year or more until I was able to find someone to do the job for me (Not an easy task in itself) and even then I needed to train them up to the high standards which I expected.
Now my job is to hold my estimating team the high standards of accuracy and speed for which I used to pride myself whilst on the tools installing the insulation to being in the office, doing insulation takeoffs on dedicated software and producing highly accurate tenders.
So without further ado, here are my top 5 reasons (in no particular order) as to why you should be outsourcing your estimating.
1.Frees up your or your estimators time to concentrate on the more ‘high value’ tasks
Most business owners know the phrase that you should be working on your business rather than in your business and nowhere is that more true than with getting bogged down in tenders and takeoffs. This is one of the principal reasons why Chase Estimating exists as a takeoff service, to free up you and your team to keep your eyes on the prize and make the big decisions calmly and with clarity rather than frantically submitting tender after tender and struggling to keep your heads above them all. We will do all that for you.
2. Here to compliment your team, not replace them
Something I always say to my client is that if you already have in house insulation estimators, that we are here to complement and support your estimators rather than replace them. If they are up to their ears in tenders, all wanted back yesterday and literally can’t take any more on, then that’s where we step in, take the pressure off them and allowing them to liaise with clients, chasing up previous tenders submitted and to submit more tenders than they were able to before. They will thank you for it once they see how much easier their life becomes with us supporting them.
3. Turn it on and off like a tap
The beauty of our service is that we are here as and when you need us, no need to keep us busy if you don’t feel the need to. If you find that you have enough work lined up in your order book, great news! We can take a step back and then get back in touch with us when you feel the need to turn the taps back on as it were and start tendering for work again. We are flexible which in turn makes you as a business more flexible if you use our insulation estimating service.
4. No national insurance, benefits or pensions to be paid
As an external contractor, you have non of the requirements to pay us what you would in house estimators such as Employers National Insurance, company cars or pensions. What we quote you is what you pay and nothing more.
5. Fast turnaround times
We have a team dedicated to thermal thermal insulation estimating and nothing more. Whilst we never rush a project, we are better placed to turnaround projects with quick return dates than say a single insulation estimator could. I pride myself on our team’s accuracy and speedy delivery.
However, as much as we want to help with every project that is sent our way, we would never promise something that we couldn’t commit to, jeopardising your client’s relationship with you, so if we feel we can’t make your deadline we will be quick to let you know so you can make other arrangements.
You can estimate projects yourself using our software, and take advantage of unique prices supplied exclusively to our company by a UK estimating software provider. Click here to find out more about our software.
