Hi Iceman
Sounds ok to me ! i swear sometimes people only want a quote so they know what to use etc ! nomatter how hard you try and give a good price some people expect a quote the same as some diy guy down the pub. The way i look at it is they either want it done right and know they are safe or just swith on and hey presto it works reguardless of whats possibly going to happen, mabe some time were see it in the show us your installs !
Regards
Kung.

These days, you need to sell yourself and your services etc etc.

Anyone can quote, but only you can sell:)
