I was wondering if Plumbers ever do free estimates?
Today, I am meeting with parents (1/2 hr. away) to determine what instruction best suits their learning disabled child. I will spend maybe 1.5 hours. The only cost is when the chid is actually in a learning setting after the intital visit from me to evaluate.
Now, I don't charge for my time, or gas and most people in my field do not, I am wondering how plumbers determine an estimate, and do you ever do free estimates, and then, it is absorbed into the cost of the service.
Our only pay is when the child is in instruction that is it. And, some parents are still not happy.
It is the same with Real Estate, when I show you a house, it is on my dime.
