Customers / Potential Customers in bad neighborhoods

How do you guys & gals handle customers / potential customers in bad neighborhoods? Bad meaning: run down areas where crime & drugs are common things on any given day. I try to focus my business on the middle to high end customer base but I inevitably get requests for bids in these types of areas as well. Profit is minimal at best in these areas and there is also a major concern for the safety of my crew, myself and my equipment.

Is it better to just politely decline the opportunity to bid or bid high enough to where I wouldn’t get the job anyhow? Thoughts and suggestions please.
