Which means that the old LCO's schedule got filled and he dropped them, or at that price there was not enough profit and he is out of business.
So I then tell the customer at that price I would lose money on the job. No wonder your old LCO is not around he went out of business with those prices.
Remember: you are winning every bid then your prices are to low.
Amen brother Bill....I have made that mistake before and will not ever make it again!!!
