This is ideal for the contractor that is too busy to spend any time on the bid, but wants in! We can deal direct with your vendors in obtaining all quotes. We will answer any questions they may have in the process, and perform cost comparisons between vendors to get you the most competitive quote to win the bid! 


Upon completion, we will then work with you to obtain the appropriate labor costs, worker fractions, overhead, profit and margins, based upon your company, workforce, project and timing. Since 1982 we have been calculating these margins that work ideally for each and every contractor, from the Mom and Pop size, to the contractor that employs 100’s of employees.

With this option you would get an extension of your company that can assume the roles of 2 – 3 employees. - *From Estimating* - *To Admin* - *To Follow Up* - *To Follow Through* - *To Close Out*



With this option we can work hand in hand with your estimator(s) to assist them in completing an estimate that they may not have the time to get done by themselves. We can act in any capacity that may be required to get the job done!



With a take-off only, we will provide you with all the miscellaneous material and labor hours to complete the job. This is ideal for the contractor that just needs a little assistance in completing a bid that he/she may be too busy to get to, but wants to get in on the bid! 



If you are looking for full time estimating solutions for your firm, we can provide cost competitive options, based upon your needs.

I would like to thank you for being there when I need an estimate out quick, which is often, “Johnny on the spot”.
To date, all the estimates you have given me have been accurate and well presented. Very detailed, which I like, makes it easier to read. I have used other outside estimators and you my friend are by far the best. Keep up the good work and thanks again for being there when I need you.

All Service Electric of Fort Myers

AColby Electric, Inc. is a Colorado-based electrical contractor emphasizing small to medium sized commercial projects.  When our estimator decided to follow his degree in Electrical Engineering, we began looking high and low for a knowledgeable and experienced Estimator to step into that role for us.  When we were introduced, and learned about the services available from On Time Estimating, we vetted their capabilities and agreed to use their services.

They took the time to ask questions so they could understand our business and our goals.  Based on those discussions, and the detailed effort they invested in using their bid preparation software, the first bid they prepared was very competitive with the other bids received. 

Since then, On Time Estimating has prepared multiple job quotes for us and our capture rate for the jobs they bid is well within industry standards. Recently On Time Estimating helped us assess our cost structure to find opportunities to improve the competitiveness of our bids even more.

Their depth of knowledge and judgement, as well as their commitment to our business success, has resulted in the establishment of the trust needed for a solid business relationship.  Without hesitation, we endorse On Time Estimating and their services.
