Your opinion on the following sceniaro.

WOULD YOU DO BUSINESS WITH COMPANY "A"???


Company "A" contacts company "B" for services.
Company "B" in good faith negotiates fees for services to be provided.
Company "A" agrees to services to be provided and fees for said services.
Company send out contract with services being "bundled" into a package that includes several services that were not discussed nor were they agreed upon. In addition the feestructure for the "bundle package" is 55% lower than the negotiated fees agreed upon by company "A".

Is this a standard procedure and would this be considered "Business" or...
Is this a poor company and should be avoided?

Thanks for your input.

Put lines through the services not talked about and tell them to initial it and send back the initialed contract to you and the fees adjusted to where they were at time of discussion.
Offer
Counter offer and or Acceptance

are 3 parts of contract negoiations

Otherwise they WILL continue to do the same. We had a guy want to put a 3 story addition next to his mobile home. We got down to final contract signing between us and another contractor. Owner came back with wanting to have storm doors furnished and installed FREE by us. "The other contractor will do this " I look at my partner and say we need to discuss this. We decide NO and tell him. He said OK I shall use the other contractor Thats FINE .

Moral usually when that sort of mind frame is started out with IT gets MORE evident as time goes on and WORSE. Just like your contract what you are seeing is the TIP OF THE ICEBERG.

Splinter YOU are 100% Correct!

Once you start down the path of higher expectations and lower (or free) reimbursements then it will continually get worse.

If I was doing a job and during the clean up stage the home owner came out and said hey guys can you load this other
small pile of unrelated trash and haul it off for me, and handed the guys a $20 tip to load it, I'd have no problem with that.


But in Splinter's case where it STARTED that way.............. nope, whiz off. I don't need the headache.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Read between the lines of their response. 1.They can't even follow directions of a documented discussion. 2. They appear to have no concept of business relationships. 3. You can see the direction a potential contract with the firm would be headed.
