They must be really nuts

SO we put in a bid for a job and the company kept sending it back saying we had to do it the client's way and that it was to high (no not if it is against code or liability).
Well this particular job we bid around 3500.00 for it. After many revisions and back and forth I finally told them to get another bid.
Guess what, I open my email today and there is a no charge work order for the work I bid. Supposedly because of my delay and refusal to bid according to the client's wishes the company can't now bid it (bull) so I am supposed to do it for free.
Sorry but I addressed it, bid it and refused to violate any codes or risk liability.
As I like to say, you can't fix stupid.

Good lord. If I may ask what all were you bidding for?

I would rather not say since it could be figured out by the wrong people reading this.
All I can say is that even though this company has given me a good amount of work it still doesn't make up for something like this. Oh well it may cause me to lose a client but I am sure I will make it up somewhere.
Just did a trashout today for a re agent. Called him when we were done and he met me in 1/2 hour with the payment. Wish there were more like that.

There are some people with intelligence on here. Sounds like the siblings to me. Just a guess though.

Ask them what a bid is ... The whole standardized pricing crap is a farce. It does not matter who it is eventually ALL REO companies are going to get to this status and be told " GO PACK SAND". I did it today when asked if I could come down 300 on a trash out I said well I willl come down 200 ... Not 250 NO @)) than on to another brow beating on another line item. SHeesh a BID IS A BID if you don't like it TOO %&^%^$%&* BAD. Get some one else to jack it up then you will see why quality and professional work cost to get done.

Does sound like Five Brothers. You should be getting another letter soon notifying you that they will be back charging you the amount of work in order to pay another contractor to complete. Wonder where he was when the bids were needed?

Ask them how they have the authority to do this and if this "authority" would stand up in a court of law.
