How Do Contractors Find Supplies Currently?

The current process for finding new supplies goes something like the following:

  2. Request a bid Once a contractor finds the company that they want to work with, they can begin the process of receiving bids. Bidding allows you to determine the best price for the materials needed. Currently, this process is time-consuming, and you can view the typical bidding process here.
