How many of you guys have a mini office set up in your car/van/truck so you can print off professional estimates on site?

I always had a laptop and printer along with all my print materials in my truck so I could make a sale there if possible. Also, it allowed me to give them a professional easy to read estimate instead of a hand written one.

I remember on one estimate measuring the home, going and printing everything off, and then giving the client a nice folder with a printed estimate, warranty document, and other info all in color for $2,800. The guy laughed and showed me the last guys estimate. It was a black and white business card that had been printed at the guys house with $1,800 printed on the back of the card in pencil with no other info about what he was going to do.

Anyways, my estimate was $1,000 more and I got the job right there.

What do you guys do and if can answer questions if anyone needs help setting one up.

I've been seeing more and more news about wireless broadband internet is coming soon. I think this will make mobile offices even more important.

I was trying to find that post you made on ContractorTalk.com about your setup PWG... it was one of the better setups.

Care to share?

Bluetooth... very nice.

I didn't have bluetooth but I did have USB and Power cables run under the carpet from the back seat to the front seat and to the power outlet.

I still like Grumpy's tablet pc though.
