    Yep the biggest complainers of price shoppers are the ones that turn around and are 100% worse to their vendors.

    You could say you would be happy to adjust your estimate to reflect their quotes, but you do understand that to be fair, you will also be adjusting your service to reflect their service as well. (Now will take two days and you will not be using or doing this that and the other thing as planned in the original estimate)

    Or turn it around and have the other companies adjust their service to match yours and ask them to keep the price of their original quote the same.

    Every cleaner charges what they are worth, so there are many different services and price points to match. The choice is theirs to use a cleaner that best fits their expectations. Explain that you may not be the right cleaner for them.

    Playing hard to get is a lot of fun. :)
