    :help:I'm looking to place a bid in for a few local stores here that I pretty much have an in on (I know the owner), but I need to make a formal bid. How does you guys set up your bids as far as a paper that you fax into someone. I don't even know how to go about this. Do I just write $XXXX on a piece of paper and fax it in? lol.

    Can't you mail it or just stop in and drop off your bid? If you fax a standard size sheet of paper will go through a fax machine.

    i went to staples or office max or something and got a pretty simple "job proposal" form and it has done the trick for me

    Sorry sorry sorry. I was short on time. My girl wanted me to go watch a movie, but I got bored so now I'm back lol. What I did was put a nice cover letter together with a small plowing logo with my name, company name, phone number etc... On the inside I layed out what the customer would ge tfor the different price ranges and the trigger options etc... I offered snow plowing and removal. Prices were varried based on how much snow. I had the pages laminated and bound. Turned out pretty nice. I made up about 10 of them. I'm pretty sure I have the one bid that I really wanted. Now I have to work to get a couple more drives for this season. i'll be using this little booklet to show residential customers too. Once again, thanks for the help guys lol.
