I would really like to see a set price for all quotes. Here is why: I hesitate to quote a job when there is not enough information given in the original quote request as I don't want to be charged for the contact just because the customer responded to a question. But, if the cost was low, and the same, for each quote request, I would respond to more and not hesitate to ask questions and start a dialogue with the customer as it would be worth the $3 to $6, or so. Sometimes I am willing to take on part of what is listed in a quote request, not everything in it, and I would be glad to discuss it with a customer, but not worth pursuing even a simple line of questioning if the cost is higher than I am willing to pay just for a response to a question. Also, I do NOT quote wall mounting TV's anymore as I don't agree with your policy of a fixed price for that type of work. There are many variables when it comes to mounting TVs on walls, like just about any other job. We should be able to quote hourly or fixed price, not be constrained to a fixed price.
