Thumbs down check out my price cut

really don't have words for this.. what do you think? not sure how they can adjust the bid to the point you lose money.. i told them to find another vendor that will do it for that price.

Is that how you wrote the bid up? If so then you include too much info IMHO. I never told them how many hours it would take or men. How much did you bid?

I would have been at about $600 for the carpet and depending on how much debris from the tree there was that would be more.


I always wrote how much such as (trim tree touching front of house 10 x 10 area 4 feet back approx 6cyds of limbs. Then I would charge for the debris and the trimming.

I know these days it's hard to get good money but that is why I got out of it.

Yep those prices were run threw the CE without discount and the hours are to low, should have worded, 6 hours, 4 men total sq ft instead of dimensions of the rooms, then put total number of rooms. Always over estimate sizes. hours and men.

I have worked with just about everyone at one time or the other, but i don't recognize that work order wording.. what company is from.

And yes its no longer your bid when it was change so drastically. Those prices sucks. Where im at they charge more at the landfill to recycle carpet. They have a special building we have to use for just carpets.

That's Safeguard and that has been run through a CE. You told them the right thing. It's not your bid anymore if they change it.

Won't be surprised if you get threatened with a chargeback for refusing to complete the order....

Picture that "woman from Ohio" needing a plumber to redo her bathrooms at home. She calls "Zeke and Sons" a journeyman who has been doing plumbing for 25 years. He quotes her $3500. She looks him in the eye and tells him she ran his work thru the CE and he should only be charging $1400 and that is what she will pay. If he were a gentleman, he'd only whoop her husband's azz.

I just tell them to go with the guy that gave them that price.

I had one a couple weeks ago where I gave a price of $3200 to clean up a horribly trashed property. They told me they were seeing only $1900. I said I see another vendor doing the job. They got the guy who bid $1900.
