Don’t get lazy with quotes – greater accuracy equals higher profit. Be as precise as possible by looking at the history of similar jobs you’ve quoted (use final actuals, not the original estimates), make accurate “labor burden” and “machine burden” calculations so that you’ll know exactly what an hour costs you, and factor in the most up-to-date material costs, including possible discounts you can (or should) negotiate.
