Unfortunately, that is what you deal with in the business world. However, something has got to give if someone can cut your price by almost half. Usually its the service end of things.

They do great for a time or two until they realize they are not really making any money. Then the usual scenario is to rush through the job and make it up that way. The end result is usually bad quality.

Be patient, about half (or more) will return to you if you have been doing excellent work. Then charge them a bit more per cut and let them know (nicely) that loyal customers get a discount.
