    is there a program that you can use to get the Measurments of a parking lot so you can bid it.

    Like google earth PLUS a sq foot calculator


    Thanks

    go to bing/maps. Then look in the bottom left corner where it says "Apps." After clicking, look for distance calculator. It is amazingly accurate. Just drag the yellow flad to one spot and drop. Then go and pick up another flag and drop it at another spot. It will instantly tell you the distance. I use it al the time in my pressure washing business. Now I only go out on about 25% of my bids. The rest are done from the computer. Good Luck. Hope this is what you were talking about.

    Go I snow costs too much in my opinion. Findlotsize.com is real good and has up to date maps. Not personally inspecting the lots is a horrible horrible idea.

    Yes I do use it and yes I inspect the property personally prior to quoting. I have not used or tried any of the other suggestions.
