So just start paying me by the Hour

Get an e-mail stating that they are going to inform us when our bids are to much and change them to meet to standards Who's Standards and what a Crock you know there not the ones paying fuel dump hourly wage material hello I have a standard too just had to get that heavy load off my chest So maybe we just need to all sign up as an employee let them pay benefits such as vacation time sick leave 401 and Healthcare. It may look like there will be a lot of reassigned work orders in my future Why is it you start doing really well and you are doing a great job and then they turn around and piss on you

it's never going to change until people start standing up and saying no but I do not see that happening for the majority of contractors.....

Send an email back informing that bids on your letterhead are not to be modified. If they do so, you are no longer bound to complete any services for an altered amount.

I always include in my bids " This bid is void if altered or changed in anyway" And also " This bid is void after 30 days from bid date " And then there are some companies that i flat out refuse to do do bid jobs for.

Done that already I said NO then they stopped work for about 2 weeks then they started work again and everything had to be completed within 48 hours due to already late status It is just a game

Additional work or alterations to this bid we have on file will result in an additional bid to be submitted. Put that in ! It sounds like you are dealing with 5 tards, FAS or Slaveguard. FAS's pricing for bids unless requested by their client is TERRIBLE I can't get a licensed plumber to even bid on it for what they want to pay ME. It is Illegal here to be a GC and do Electrical, Plumbing ETC. These nationals have to realize that if they want us non licensed and bonded, for plumbing, people for the specific task, then they ASSUME LIABILITY !!

Diversify my friend. When they stop the work, and you end up getting your life back, you won't want to answer when the phone inevitably rings again.....

If an adjusted bid iis submitted on your behalf via the internet...wire fraud.
Again use the Istar system over on forclosurepedia and file a complaint...that is the only place in the industry taking up this fight for the contractors...
As some have pointed out in the thread until you say no and stop them they will continue to do so....

Absolutely not! Under no circumstance is this legal. I don't know who "they" are but refuse.

I like the moniker 5 tards. I told them a few days ago when they ordered me to reduce my bid that it wasn't a bid if they told me what to charge. Their response was to do it within 24 hours or I would have to pay for the next guys bid. I called and said why would they pay the next guy their bid but not me. Because it would be a backcharge to me for refusing to follow policy. Then they would get standard price from the bank PLUS full backcharge to me. Cleanupman, isn't this charging twice for the same service and illegal?
Anyway, I said I quit if this doesn't go away. It went away.
