Spons price books and similar
 
Anyone using any of the spons, bcis or similar price books?

If so how are you finding them with regards to your own actual prices?

Way, way way over the top. Might get those prices as a big contractor filling in a ton of H+S paperwork for your guys to fart, but not as a general contractor on a mix of domestic and commercial jobs.

And there's me thinking this was a used plant guide book :confused: I have looked up job rates on the internet and also house builders bible in the past. The two things I found are the customer already has a perceived value already in mind, plus a lot of them get you to price just to check up on someone else's costing.

I think the rates shown vary wildly from way to high, and some way to low. I can't comment on spons but I would be interested to see an up to date copy.

Never looked or dabbled with any form of price books except guide performance/TPH rates for earthmoving.

Pricing is a pain in the Arse IMHO... I avoid it where I can.:o

Got spons. It's too hard to understand to be honest. I'm no illiterate but seriously too many calculations to do. Any decent sized building job it's prob worth a few hundred quid to get a qs to price. Obviously providing they're not messers
