How to Email TruckLabor Quotes to Your Customers

One of the best ways to make sure you and your customer are on the same page with the cost of a repair is to have a copy of the quote right in front of you both. But this can be difficult without having the customer present at the shop while the work is being quoted.

Not to worry – it’s easy to send the quote to them via email. You can use the following step-by-step method in TruckLabor to quickly email labor quotes to your customers.

If your computer doesn’t have software installed to create a PDF, there are many free third party PDF programs to choose from. One we like is called PDFCreator. Note: Mitchell 1 is not affiliated with PDFCreator and you should always check with your company’s IT department before installing programs on your computer.
