Need Something Else


We acknowledge that there are individuals who prefer to stick to their established routines, and we completely respect that choice. That's why we've joined forces with Pinch Estimating to cater to those who prefer the traditional approach.


Buy Bids is a platform that introduces a pre-estimated method to the construction estimating industry. At Buy Bids, our experts take a blueprint and dissect it into distinct trades. We then perform the quantity takeoff in advance, allowing contractors to browse our collection of pre-estimated construction projects and select the one that matches their specific trade. Once you've chosen your construction project, you can download the relevant documents, add your costs to the editable automated formula spreadsheet, and submit your bid. It's a process that's simplified, streamlined, and highly efficient.


While we understand that this approach works wonderfully for many professionals, we also acknowledge that some contractors prefer the traditional estimating and bidding process, which we affectionately refer to as "Old School." We believe this "Old School" method is a valuable option for those who can't find a suitable project on Buy Bids.


The "Old School" process entails contractors receiving a bid set for a specific project through various means, such as from existing clients, pre-construction websites, or referrals. Contractors then carry out the quantity takeoff and estimation for the received request for proposal (RFP) themselves, or they may opt to hire a freelancer or use an in-house employee for this task.


We fully support these traditional methods and are eager to assist in any way possible. For those who prefer such methods or have specific requirements, we refer them to our trusted partner in construction estimating, Pinch Estimating.


Pinch Estimating can handle your construction plans using the "old school way." By "old school," we certainly don't mean manual estimation with a ruler and paper drawings, which is more like the great-grandfather's approach that we deeply respect but no longer practice. If you have specific needs, are resistant to change, or can't find your construction project listed on the Buy Bids website, you can rely on Pinch Estimating for your construction estimating requirements.


Pinch Estimating also offers a variety of other construction services or construction related services outside of just construction estimating to help contractors. If you do not see the project or a project that you are excited about on Buy Bids you want to submit for bid, please check out Pinch Estimating our dedicated partner.
