Was wandering... do you do most of your estimates during the day or at night? Or both... whenever the customer can meet?

I put both... just as my guess to what most will answer...

What has been the latest you did an estimate/ your avg time of day?

The best time to do bids is the 6pm to 8pm time, when both spouses are home. I get a much better close rate ( probably 50%) when both of them can meet me and feel confident in me and trust me. I meet with folks during the day, but usually just the wife/mother, and at 2-4k first year cost she usually has to run it by the husband, who has not met me. I close about 25% when I only meet one of the couple.

I figured meeting the wife would be the biggest thing to do. But with that kind of money I can see where you would need both...

My wife is not going to like this though... but she can deal with it.
