Many people have been raised with the belief that you should always obtain 3 bids before deciding on a company for your project. While this can certainly be a beneficial step to take, it is important to ensure that you understand why you always learned to get 3 bids. It is critical to approach the project in the right way in order to make the absolute best decision to meet your needs.
Most people believe that they are supposed to obtain 3 bids in order to avoid getting ripped off. Thus, it would logically follow that you would then choose the cheapest bid of the free. However, this won’t necessarily provide you with the best outcome for the job. In fact, when you choose the cheapest bid, you may find that you have obtained the cheapest job.
Money should not always be the deciding factor when you decide on a company for your project. Obtaining 3 bids can help to ensure that you get a general idea about what the project should cost. It is important to consider the experience and expertise that the company can provide when you decide on their bid. For one thing, the company should perform an in-home analysis before offering you a bid. If they only provide a bid over the phone, it is unlikely that the bid will be particularly accurate. There are many factors that can impact your bid, so this in-home analysis is critical.
It can be extremely beneficial to get 3 bids, but only when you understand how to make the best decision from these multiple bids. It is important to not simply decide on a bid because it is the cheapest one, because that can significantly impact the quality of your services.
