"One of the things I ask the YP caller is how many esimates are you getting. If theanswer is over 3 or 4 I ask how come so many estimates. Invariably the answer is I want the lowest possible price. Then I tell them we don't have that but thanks for calling. "
I do the same exact thing when people call, you can weed them right out. The best though that I get are the people that call, and don't even leave their name or phone number, and want an estimate on like a tree removal, or a weekly maint. price.
" Yeah, Hi, I would like an estimate on taking a tree down. The tree is right in the middle of the front lawn marked with tape. Address here is 123 Waste your Time Ln., you can leave a estimate in the box. Thanks"
Just hit the delete button right away when I get those.
