Recently there was a post in here and he stated that he never did "free estimates", thats awesome! I was approched by a painting contractor and he noticed we give free estimates like everyone else does. He asked me how can we afford to give them out? I told him it's pretty much the indusrty standard, I then said I'm guessing you don't give out free estimates, and his reply-Hell no! or I would be in the poor house. He was booked into the end of August!! I was thinking of charging $10-$15.00 and if they sign giving double that back towards their bill. Any thoughts?
