We offer Professional Freelance Electrical Estimation Services
Are you a professional electrical contractor in Canada? If you are one, you would know that bidding on projects and taking up complex projects based on new ideas are challenging tasks. More so if your team is occupied with other tasks, inexperienced, or simply, short of staff. That’s where freelance electrical estimation companies like Real Cost Estimating come in.
In a fast-developing and highly competitive construction industry, you need to be quick and efficient to stay on top of the game. However, there are always too many things to focus on in a contracting firm – running your current projects, managing employees, carrying out inspections and purchasing supplies.

Whatever be the case, you always need competent and experienced electrical estimators to make accurate bids on a project. Whether you’re bidding on a domestic or industrial scale project, our business is based on helping you ace the project in record time.

Real Cost has a large, accurate and updated database, with details of trade prices for over 750000 individual items. and is updated on a weekly basis, to obtain trade prices. Based on our market knowledge and wholesaler terms, we apply discounts to these trade prices.
The calculations for labour times and rates are obtained mostly from the knowledge and experience of our electrical engineers. We then apply your relevant hourly rate to achieve the labour cost for the estimate.
Definitely! Once the estimate is compiled, we can arrange a review session with you, either in person or over a call. We will let you review the full estimate and drawings, and engage in discussions about the project in general, how we compiled and built it up, and what markup percentages you need. In follow-up to the review, we make revisions to the estimate as per your requirement. Once there is consensus regarding the work, we will mail the final estimate complete with the tender summary and qualifications.
We do not quote a project for more than one client. If you request a bid for a job that we already have, we will inform you, and your request will remain confidential.
