Last week a national general contractor using 4Clicks noticed that while using the RSMeans Rental Equipment O&P rates that the supplied equipment costs were not including the 10% markup. We quickly ran this by our parters at RSMeans and got clarification that while data is delivered in bare cost only, that is is a correct practice for estimators to include that markup in their spreadsheets. However since e4Clicks users rarely use spreadsheets or RSMeans books we have modified these electronic costs to automatically support the 10% additonal markup on these items on the 01-54-33 Rental Equipment line items.  Thanks again to our great 4Clicks users for your suggestions.   We do listen and as you can see, respond pretty quickly be adding these to your software.
