Hahaha, had that before, think they know more then you or try telling you how to do your job, went to a job today for a joinery firm, customer said I want that tidying up where your colleague took old curtain rail down, sorry but that's a timber frame I cant plaster on that it will crack and fall off, but your colleague said you can, he's a joiner not a plasterer.

My old man said to me once, some people are all fur coat no nickers, I know a few people that don't own a single thing it's all just on credit cards and loans, but if they genuinely are loaded and haggle you down is pathetic imo.

Only because you initially charged 130quid for 2 walls.

Why would anyone want to work every day for that little? Just work 2 days for good money and lose some

Fair enough.
I work with a guy quite often, he charges £125 a day, really good at his job.
I charge 300 minimum for a days work so when he works with me I'm on 475 he's on 125 for doing the same job. I never tell him what I charge, but he always says you can't get decent money round here. "yeah, know what you mean"

Price the job for what it's worth to you not what you think will scare the customer off

Think your right.. price your worth. Too many ones scrapping for the cheap price an never getting any further. Just because the guy is super busy doesn’t mean he’s making more than you. Anyone can be stacked with work when your pricing £120 a day. Or is the guy who’s pricing high an only getting a half the jobs but good payers, less taxing on the body/ making more in his hand an week. I know who I want to be.
