All of my ads specify........free estimates within the city........all out of town estimates are charged according to the miles. At least the time you were there.......another LCO shows up at the same time. I have done this and both of us met the customer and each wrote out an estimate. The clincher is--The other competitor left and the customer showed me his other estimate. Asked me if I could beat it! Fortunately---I left also!!!! But a free estimate is what is says---Free estimate!!!!!!!unless specified!
