Quoting Against a Decorator Who Doesn’t Give Quotes

By Jeff Cannons

 

A few weeks ago, I was working on a regular customer of mines’ exterior. The guy from across the lane asked me to quote his exterior windows and doors, I priced it up and sent quote. I got a reply saying his usual guy was booked up till next year, hence the quote from me and he was waiting for 1 more quote. He went on to ask my availability etc.

Got an email this morning his regular guy is now available, not a problem to be honest, but I replied asking how my quote measured up against his regular guy? His reply “he still hasn’t sent a quote he’ll just bill me at the end of job “I’d never undertake work until my price is agreed, regular customer or not.
