I'm not sure what you put your bid in for, but I wouldn't take my equipment out of my truck for less than $200. You didn't state how deep this water is, and if they deny it, drop your price a $$$ and if they deny it again call your coordinator and tell them that this is your minimum price to do the job. End of story. Do not bow down to the nationals and let them tell you how much to do a job for that isn't on the agreed price list.

Also forget the cost estimator. You have to pay per bid for that garbage and if you don't get the bid approved, then what? You will waste 10k on this estimator a year when only you know what it is going to cost to operate YOUR business

RepairBASE:
Mop or Vacuum up Standing Water - up to 100 SF - Does not Include Drying of Flooring or Structure $19.79

Just a suggestion:
I WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING IN THIS INDUSTRY FOR $19.79 - My 'Trip Charges' where NO work is completed start at $50. If this standing water takes less than 1 minute to mop up, I would suggest submitting a 'minimum charge' bid instead of the CE generated one. My minimum for this less than 1 minute to complete service would probably be in the neighborhood of $100 NET (I allow a maximum 0.0% discount for all my clients).

Another suggestion:
Whenever a company denies my bid I simply reply back "OK, thank you for giving us the opportunity". My submitted bids are what I am willing to complete the project for - If it's too high, sorry - If it's too low, let me know & I'll be happy to adjust it.

I do feel that CE's have their place in this industry & I frequently use them - But I also know when not to use them - Like in this case.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

I think the last one I did billed out for like $35 through the CE. Hardly worth the trip.

You'll need the depth of the water to get a bid, it's a big difference between 1 inch of water and 3ft.

Both of the CE's I use differentiate between 'mopping up' standing water, which would basically have no depth & 'pumping' water, which would require more equipment than just a mop or squeegee.

I realize that but the original post said mop or vacuum up. Could fall into either category in my mind but I see the post you showed from the CE as well. Those things freaking rape every job 90% of the time.
