I might've been tempted to go totally the other direction and completely floor him "Yeah, normally it'd be about $23,500 but I if you're supply the parts, I can probably do it for $19,000 even."...He was really pissed when I told him 150.:laughing:
I call that the 5 stages of sticker shockI get them all the time sometimes they are much more off the wall than this. Funny thing is sometimes they come back and I get the job at a much higher price because some calling around brought them back to reality of what work actually costs. We charge fair prices and still make a really great profit between our material markup and labour charge.
