Reasons to Hire a Freelance Construction Estimator Online

1- Freelance Estimators Can Work from Anywhere

Construction estimation work does not require physical, local presence. Given that the freelance estimator has the required experience from previous projects, using today’s wide array of communication tools, you can coordinate the work no matter where he or she is.

2- Availability on Demand

Working with freelance construction estimators means that you work with them only when you need them. But if you have a relationship with only one freelance estimator, he or she might be unavailable to work with you on short notice due to being busy with other clients, on vacation, sick, or a multitude of reasons, which brings us to the next point…

3- Freelancing Platforms Offer More Choices

When you use an online freelancing platform that has a wide pool of experts, then you simply have more choices to choose from. You’ll receive bids from several candidates, check their previous work through their profiles, and decide who to hire within hours or days. It’s fast, efficient, and diverse.

4- Working with Vetted Freelance Estimators

Not all platforms do this, but Real Estimate Service only connects clients to vetted and screened freelance construction estimators, and this ensures your peace of mind when going for a new hire you only just met online.

5- Competitive Pricing

Hiring a freelance estimator through a freelancing platform provides you with multiple bids and offers, and the nature of these platforms makes the prices competitive. On the other hand, when you hire someone through traditional channels like personal connections, he or she often bids higher because there are only so many bids you can receive on short notice without using a platform, which naturally causes the freelancer to provide more expensive prices.

Increase efficiency

Furthermore, one estimator can only do so much. As an experienced estimating company with a large team, we can do more takeoffs.  We have the latest takeoff software that minimizes the chances of error and gives us the ability to estimate accurately and in much less time. We have all heard it before, it is a numbers game. The more you bid, the more you win. So, you get more takeoffs and estimating done per week with us. This further allows you to bid on more projects and increase your chances to land on large jobs.

Save time

As a business owner, your mind is stuffed with so many other things and thus managing your time is difficult. Maybe you manage on a job site all day. Or you may wear many hats in your company. Many of our current clients simply do not have the extra time to sit down and do takeoffs after a long hard day of work. You cannot always dedicate your valuable time for a laborious activity as estimating, hence, hiring estimating services lets you utilize your time for business development and growth.
