Getting a bit annoyed now with the small jobs and people not wanting to pay, should I just say/set a minimum and tell them on phone, save wasting my time and fuel.
got in at 9 tonight after wasting 5 hours driving about town.
chimney breast board and skim Â£160.00 - got the job/now cancelled
room skim over old bonding on 2 walls, also patch bottom of stairs Â£155.00 - not got, didn't even give email to send proper quote.
Kitchen ceiling after leak, repair, patch and then re-skim full ceiling 4x5 Â£180.00 not got, too expensive, told me there and then
full bathroom d&d 2 walls full skim to 3x1.5m bathroom Â£350.00 accepted there and then.
what are people's thoughts on guesstimating on the phone, i have a job to price tomorrow, other side of town, hallway & landing ceiling in a 3 bed semi, I feel like just saying Â£150.00 on phone (won't be far wrong) if he takes it ok, if not iv not wasted my time and fuel
I pay all proper tax and run things correctly.
