    How many of you have free estimate in your adds or lettered on your truck. Seems like every time we see a pic of truck, business card, or logo we have to see the free estimate. Has anyone ever had someone say they called them over someone else because you give "free estimates"? I know people call and ask for a free estimate, but it is cuz they are cheap. Personally I don't understand why you have to advertise that your time is free to meet people for pricing.

    I think it is a mental thing, when people see free, it kinda makes them want to call you, but who in their right mind would pay someone for an estimate, I'm with you, it makes no sense at all. I don't use that as bait.
