No time for estimates only. They either want me to clean it or they don’t.

TBH. I wouldn’t mind the sales call. It’s just not feasible for me at this time.

I think I told the lady that. It was back when diesel was $5/gallon for that short period and I thought it was needed. As slow as my business was...it really wasn't a good idea

Could always add $.02 per square foot to the price of every job over 1500ft2. Maybe $.04 to those under that.

good topic. we do not. we do stone. best to lay eyes on it unless small job.

adds another layer to management


do you charge for an estimate, Carl?

never bothered with onsite estimates for res.
Over the phone is easy enough when asking the right questions

Com/offices a whole 'nother situation.
Far more variables as Ron noted

the few residential who insist on an onsite quote, better be talking about upholstery, t&g and carpets in one clean.
Otherwise, I politely decline unless I can fit it in with another job in passing

Larry, we do NOT charge for an estimate, in our normal service area

with stone refinishing, on larger sq ft, 500-5k sq ft
customers often can NOT answer the questions needed in order to prepare a detailed contract
