I keep telling myself not to give quotes with so much time before cutting cause the people(tire kickers) are hell bent on getting a bunch of quotes and using them for leverage. I've done 3 for people using the local low-baller(a mid sized co. with 3 crews who's employees all look like they just left a meth lab) but hate his work then decide to give him another chance when they find out the going rate. One was from a million dollar gated hood.I did pick up one in the winter but I was the only one to return their call. How do you guys close when your the first one to show and the people want to get more quotes? I get almost all my work after the grass starts growing but I still can't resist doing these early bird quotes even though I know it's a waste of time. Being first is the way to go when the grass is growing but before the season it seems to be a major disadvantage. I also realize that the low-ballers help us all by taking the pita's and make us look good with our quality but I hate proving to people how cheap they're getting it for. Thanks in advance for any help.
