. Don't always accept the lowest price if you know it is hardly going to
show a profit
I agree wholeheartedly. I was trying to explain to my daughter that if three
garages has quoted £200, £300 and £400 to sort her car the one to choose
would be the £300 chappie and one of the logics was that the cheapest was too
cheap and would cut corners or go out of business abnd not be able to frovide
follow on service.
The trick is for the tenderer to have done their homework and have a real
idea of what the cost should be by having a target price to act as a basis
judgement. So often we assume that the other guy will work for less than us
we dont do our homework.
What happened with the car....I am sure you know....repaired at the lower
price and then failed and had to go to the more expensive man and cost more
the right price first time.
