View Full Version : What's up with posting prices on a web site?

How and why do these yahoos post their installed prices for complete systems on their site?
And when I come to a job, and some dude has the prices laying on the table, what the heck am I supposed to say?

Some homeownes like to see those prices. Most realize that their price won't be close to what is advertised.
it doesn't matter.
Because it is against the rules

I don't think he was talking about the forum rules, he's talking about internet pricing in general and the fact that some homeowners actually believe they can get a quote over the net without a heat-load done. Or that they can show you some prices and expect you to bid based on them.
The XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX you see was me removing two internet links he posted loaded with pricing.
I personally walk the fence about the pricing rule.. but it is still a rule but I understand his point.

on this website -no pricing.. on your own website oh well...
But the genral response is:
Julio(insert ethnic name) also advertises he will give you the cheapestprice in the newspaper... Well(insert customer name here) I hope the codes and installlation instructions are written in(haitain,spanish,arabic--insert language here) or it could end up costing you a lot more. Obviously you are concerned about price since I play by the rules I can only give you my price. Honesty too has a price so if the price is losing this job i guess that is what I have to accept. You can lead a horse to water but not make him drink. The truth has set me free and the cheapest is the cheapest but you get what you pay for ..It is a saying for a reason. All i can say is if you hire me you get value ...I charge what i am worth.
