How about a painters professional appearance?
Is the painting contractor clean looking?
clients hire workmen on emotion. Do they
like us? If so, then why? Do
they trust us in their homes just
because we are cheaper than another painter?
They hire us because they like and
trust us more than the other guys
that submits his estimate.

Theres a painting franchise that states they
decorate a complete house or flat in a
day. At 8.am. a gang of painters
arrive with a lorry load of equipment
and painters. Every room is occupied by
3-4 workers. By 4.am the jobs finished the
whole house gleaming. The workmen clean-up
and leave but the supervisor waits for
the occupants to arrive home. He jumps out
of a cupboard with a beaming smile
he hands them a lovely bunch of flowers.
I think they must be telling porkies!!

Estimating a paint job is very time-consuming
and you will only win a percentage of
the work you bid for. If you
don't get the work that you are
giving a price for, at the rate your
company demands it is better than going
in low and winning the contract because
you will be setting a standard for
future low priced work that can only
lead to poor work along with wages
for your men. Low prices can often leads
to bankruptcy.

Did you up your estimate price or did
you just forget about the price increases
and absorb the loss? If your business
doesn't stay current with the latest price
increases when doing their estimates, you are
bound to lose cash. Pass on price
increases now don't wait till the end of
the year. Why pay throughout the year
for your customers jobs.

When the painter looks at your job and
cannot decide on a price and says he
will do the work on a daily rate,
say no! you want a price for the
whole job. What one painter can do
in 10 hours another may labor to do
it in 20 due to lack of
experience or may not be a painter
at all.

When the inexperienced self employed painter has to
go out and price a job, no doubt
he will feel nervous at whether he
pitches his price too high or very often,
through eagerness to get the job, to low.
Only learning from experience will he get
this right. Go too low and the
painter will struggle from the start.

If you don't mind working for nothing, when
a client shows you the job take little notice
of what needs doing without putting pen to
paper, as though you have a video camera for
a brain and you will remember every small detail.
After making small talk you feel the client wants
you to give a verbal estimate. You might have
no work at the time so you offer
a low price to get the work which the
client accepts and you get the job.
Later you wished you had charged much more!!
