Trying to reduce Invoice

So I had put in a bid to remove 15 yards of branches and broken limbs from a property and the bid was approved.
Went and did it and took a photo of the truck (20 yard) 3/4 full.
Now I received an email stating that I need to submit more photos because the photos don't justify 20 yards or reduce my invoice to 10 yards. This was my response, see what happens.

" The photos show that the truck is 3/4 full, a 20 yd truck 3/4 equals 15 yards. Also this bid was submitted and approved for the given amount. Sorry but we DO NOT reduce invoices after the job is complete".

Depends on what your bid stated. If you bid hauling away 20 yards and you only hauled 15, you should adjust accordingly. If it was a flat rate to clean up the yard, then screw'em.

The original bid stated 15 yards as did the approval. This is why I am mostly out of this crap.

I think what TNT is saying is that even if the bid is approved for say 20 CYD, and only 15 CYD is removed because it was over estimated, then technically they would have grounds to reduce the original bid.

If I call "1800GOTJUNK" to my house and their estimate says it's going to be 2 loads hauled, and they end up fitting it all in one load, would you pay for 2 loads since it said it on the bid?

In your case, sounds like this isn't the case, though, you really did remove 15.

Does the photo you submitted make it unequivocally clear that the truck was 3/4 full? If there's any room for doubt, I could see them wanting a couple more.

Maybe.....

Depends on what the contract says.

Does it say, up to 2 loads?, or I agree to pay for "actual" loads hauled?, or is it a flat contract amount for$***x and up to 2 loads?

Take the debris back to the property, dump it back where it was before and let the ball bounce back to them. They decided to decline what they approved, so can you.
