another dumb customer.

Got a call for carpenter ants. Took my $65k rig and tools have to use termidor figured id give the guy a break. Bait the house with optic guard dust the attic and base of house and ant trails with termidor and coke ( not cocaine) and give him a discount. $350.00.. he jumps and screams tells me I'm just trying to rip him off. I leave he calls back today and says ok I got the job if ill do it for $275.00. I asked why... his answer. Yours was the cheapest bid.
I was dumb founded I was cheapest and I could have the job if I dropped my price.
I told him sure. Ill be st your house the first Monday of December. He hung up on me

We certainly don't negotiate prices. We figure out all associated costs, set the price and deliver it. If somebody wants cheap, we encourage them to call a bottom feeder company. LOL.
