Components of a Quote (Short)

There is no one-size-fits-all template for a quote (short). Proposal Kit templates can be customized as needed to fit any situation using the extensive chapter template library. Here are some key chapters typically included in this type of template. Use this template as your starting point and customize it as needed using the software included with each Proposal Pack or the Professional bundle.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as the introduction to your quote. It provides a brief overview of the purpose of the quote, setting a professional tone and summarizing key points. For a short quote, this section should be concise and to the point, highlighting the most critical aspects of the work order.

Work Order (Without Deposit)

In the Work Order (Without Deposit) chapter, you outline the specific tasks or services to be provided. This section should detail what will be done, the timeline, and any specific conditions. For a short quote, this means being clear and straightforward about the scope of work so that the client understands exactly what they will receive.

About Us

The About Us chapter gives a brief introduction to your company. This is your chance to build trust and credibility by sharing relevant information about your organization's history, mission, and core values. For a short quote, keep this section succinct but informative, focusing on aspects that demonstrate your reliability and expertise.

Services Provided

The Services Provided chapter elaborates on what your company offers. When used in a short quote, this section should list the services related to the work order, ensuring that the client grasps the extent and quality of what you provide.

The Proposal Pack for Any Business is the pack with no extra added logos or colors - designed to be used plain or for you to customize with your logos and graphics.

The Proposal Pack design theme you purchase will determine the visual look of this template. The screenshot above only shows the plain generic design theme. Names and stories in examples are fictional; however, the templates are from real client use cases.

We include a library of chapters to be assembled based on your needs. All proposals are different and have different needs and goals. We designed Proposal Pack so you can customize the documents to suit your needs.

You will best create this document using the Proposal Pack Wizard - Expert Edition software to select this template and build it in the Proposal Pack logo design theme of your choice along with any desired customizations (such as adding additional chapters, removing unneeded chapters, changing the order of chapters, and importing your company logo). This template outlines a proposal for the described situation. Each user is responsible for typing in the actual content of the provided pages with their information to complete the proposal.

You create this template using the Wizard software with an entire Proposal Pack library and software. We include the Expert Edition of the software in the Proposal Kit Professional bundle. Microsoft Word for Windows is required to use the customizing software.

You can also edit Word document templates in other office software such as Word for Mac. We will assist Mac users in assembling this template - Quote (Short) - for their first project if they do not have the required platform to run the Wizard software.

We typically include more chapters in the templates than most people will need to give everyone more variety in the chapters they may need. You can trim down a long template by removing pages you do not need or combining multiple chapter topics into one page.
