IMO, If you were too high the calls would stop coming in.
That's the tell.

Who's telling you that you are high? One customer, all customers? Hopefully you haven't got caught working for just one customer.

How many jobs have you lost to being too high in the past 12 months?

Do you have cut throat competition or is it a niche marker?

I have more than one customer. it just seems that in the gas and oil market, they are always needling you. I always seem to hear, "Is there a way we can cut this down?" Or something to that effect. I generally give them one proposal, and try not to waste time trimming the fat.

Have only lost a few, I think mainly because of out of town expenses. Got beat out by a locals, I think.

I have heard, that some got what they paid for.

But, the type of work that we do is a niche. Not as many do GRC and Plastibond. And, those that do, usually work out in the patch.
So it sounds like you are in at a reasonable number, but some wannabe's are whoring up the market.
