    The price is the price and is non negotiable.

    Unless it's still a fantastic job and still a good price I'd go lower! If however if I felt something wasn't Right I'd walk

    Hang on a minute. You were cheaper than someone else? :BS:

    Plus they know the standard of the other lot's work, but do they know the standard of your work? If the other lot are :turd: but they are still happy to keep them if they do it cheaper sounds iffy to me. Now if the other lot are good and are willing to do the job cheaper, why are they gambling on the standard of your work? Assuming they don't know the standard of your work.

    Unless of course you have done other work for them in the past and your professional approach has attracted them to you ;)

    You are such a smatry pants @Tuffers:rolleyes:

    No I wasn't cheaper to start with that was the funny bit and they still did not get offered the job nor win it back either being cheaper still. I just told them how good I was as you do and said no that is my price :D
