    If I understood that, your price was lower even tho your quoted per square foot was higher?

    So the othe companies were quoting more square foot area


    How can you not get it?

    The Insurance company I used for everything asked me to bid on their offices a few years back

    I bid $900 for the area and they tried to chisel me down to $750 based on a competing bid.

    They went with the other company

    I dumped them as my insurer on renewal and when my agent called I told him I got a better price just like his office did

    Im not sure Fred, I'm guessing they went out and eyeballed it and over quoted.

    I bet they go with our one big $37 a room multi trucker.

    If you've never met or talked to them(estate), you are just a number. Even with the agent recommendation.

    Funny you should say that. I went and did a quote after work. The family who owns half the city I live in is notorious for being cheap. I measured it up, got an email address, and as I was walking out the door, the lady said to me, ‘by the way, the last cleaner we had was @ 6 cents a sqft. Can you beat that price’? I laughed, and my reply was, ‘I’m going to be 4 times that per sqft. Even at that, I’m giving you guys the bulk work price. I’m not interested in paying you guys to clean’.... and I walked out....

    I once had a large company wanting to give me work at $.03 per sqft. I had to tell them that's less than my cost. They do the local airport and other large areas. I laughed at them too.
