    They already sound like a pain to deal with, I would pass.

    Email. I still haven’t heard back from them regarding the necessity of a second quote. I’m out. I want business, but I’m not chasing people down, going to properties multiple times, and then having them pull a Houdini after they find I’m not the lowest bidder.

    I’m willing to bet they’re just running down a list of local guys seeing who does what and the cheapest overall price. Too bad my estimates clearly state they expire in 7 days, which is tomorrow. Thumbs Up

    When you notice who is mowing this year at that property you will have found another low baller.

    What a croc. If they want you to cut the grass and you get hired,you'll be back. And what if they want something else done, you're going to tell them this croc of steaming mess? I really don't understand that kind of statement that "if you don't tell me what you want in my first visit you won't get me back"?

    Not trolling at all. If they want you to work for them to do what they asked for then two days later decide to have more work done, by your standards you should right them off and not go back! I've never ran into this before. When they want something small done and I see other stuff that needs done, I usually make mention and that leads to more work in the end. Even if they wait a few days later then call and ask about prices for other work, I wouldn't right them off.

    Heat wave here, 17 degrees and only 3" of snow. Feels like Spring.
