    We normaly charge $29.95 for each pgp up to 6. After that we lower the price to $21.95.
    Yesterday 1 of my techs replaced 17 at one house. The customer was with him and saw that he himself ( the customer ) had taken out the majority with his plow over the winter.
    This guy is kinda cheap, wondering if I should lower the price down to Hunters new list of $16.95 , or stay with $21.95?
    What would you do?
    I dont want the guy running to home cheapo next spring.

    The math is still good for you. We charge 19.00 each. If you are getting all your labor billing and he is a repeat customer I'd just drop my price to the list.

    I would say no, even if the list price changed "my price" did not change. We charge $34.95 for PGP-ADJ. Where did you see or hear that the list price had changed. I thought I had the "current" list prices. Last year we had a customer that had maxi-paws (27) and wanted them switched out to PGP's, I think we dropped the price down to $30 or $32.

    They dropped it last fall to compete with RB 5000

    The price drop must be a regional thing - the list I was just quoted by my supplier is $21.95.

    So did your cost on the PGP drop to reflect the change in the list price????

    Every time I consider dropping prices, I think of GXR and raise them instead.

    $26, dropped to $22 if more than 4. You're still making a good chunk of change if you drop it a little more. It's what you feel is acceptable, not us.

    (to no one in particular) What are you charging for labor in addition to the price of the PGP?

    I've heard of some some companies flat-rate charging for a PGP replacement. Others charge a service call charge for xxx minutes (with zzz per hour after that) plus materials.
