10 Questions to Ask Before Bidding a Construction Project

Before you bid a job, make sure you’re ready. Here’s a quick list of things to consider before you go after business.

  • Do I have the equipment for this job?
  • Do I have the expertise for this job?
  • Do I have the people who can work this job?
  • Do I have a plan?
  • How much risk would be required?
  • Where is the job?
  • What is the worst that could happen?
  • Who is my competition and what are their strengths?
  • What are my strengths? What do I do best?
  • How much am I able to bid and still be bonded?

Older Equipment? ReLife.

Pay nothing for 120 days on parts and service more than $50,000 — and keep seasoned equipment running profitably while boosting your cash flow. Plus, follow up your no-payment period with a low interest rate.

Lease or Loan? How Should You Finance Equipment?

Leasing construction equipment or taking out a loan to purchase both have their advantages. Which one is best for you depends on your goals as a contractor at any given time.

Before you acquire new equipment, ask yourself these questions to determine your business needs:

– How long will you need the equipment?
– Do you want to own the machine at the end of the term?
– Are you interested in keeping up with the latest technology?
– Do you want to buy out early?
– Are there tax, cash flow, and financial issues you’re trying to satisfy?
– Are you more concerned about the lease rate or the overall cost?
– Are you just looking for the lowest possible payment?

When you have a good idea of what your business needs are, compare the advantages of leases and loans to find out which one matches your needs best.
