Im new to have an account here, but I have read on plenty of topics to get advice about my business.

Looking for help though. Got an opportunity to bid a decent size CCU for a local construction company. I am looking for some input on how to go about bidding this job.

I know nobody likes to give a $$ amount and that’s fine. But maybe just how you would go about bidding something this size. Windows are basically cut ups in my opinion. Would need a boom to get to most of them

I appreciate your thoughts in advance!

Quick question, have you ever used a lift before?

You’ll probably want 5x your normal rate.

Any advice @apkwindows? See also

Hey Jared

Yes I’ve used a 65’ straight boom several times. Thanks!

I’m definitely glad you’ve got experience on them. They’re not as fun as I thought they’d be.

Anyway, take into account how slow it’s going to be from window to window and 5x might not be enough. 3-5x is what I charge for ground level. So you could come up with a number and then add a few hundred to pad it for moving that lift around.

I’m still scarred…


Lifts aren’t so not so bad. It’s the operators that suck.

No, they’re not bad, it’s just that I thought I could zoom up and zoom down and zoom to the next set and zoom done.

Freakin plywood.
