    What is your quote success rate? Does it ebb and flow over the year or stays faitly constant?

    Has it improved over time?

    Mmmm:cool:

    Justice league, can I ask why you’re curious about this? A recent question you asked, was about is it normal to leave a customer hanging regards quoting for a new boiler in a new location.
    You’re not from a surveying/ data company are you?

    I'm not the cheapest and that's all people seem to want round me at the moment. So not many.

    I’ve had the same. But to be fair the kitchen is coming out soon.

    No I am just a normal customer / consumer. My initial question was why would a tradesman take the time to come out to quote for work and then not quote - not happened to me before.

    Which then lead me onto this question which I thought was interesting.

    I would be concerned if my rate were that high Riley. That should only happen if you are far too cheap, you live on a remote island where you are the only choice or the others are Sweeny Todd Plumbing . ;)

    No a lot of it is because I am trusted through a letting agent where I am quoting for a large number of landlords who have faith in the service provided by the agent and their contractors
