Hello! I have a problem more with the process of how requests are currently posted. I have stated this formerly and suggested that I may be willing to assist in tweeking the process. As an electrical contractor, I need certain details that are not provided by your current customer utilized automated process/system. These details are needed to provide a more accurate estimate. You should depend more upon descriptive requests which include details such as access and distances. Pics would be a great help too. I find myself deleting many requests due to lack of detail; more than I actually bid upon. Any attempt to seek details, results in my being charged when I receive a reply. Then I may not receive the job anyway. In so far as pricing, yes, I believe that your cost is too great. I believe that the customer should have a small charge as well for their request. There are far too many putting requests out there just to see what the pricing would be. Even if we are not charged, it still costs us to look through these postings and formulate an estimate. Time is money; after all. Make the cost equitable to all parties. It also seems that there is a limit to the amount of quotes that are allowed per request? Sometimes its 5 and others as many as 12. This limit should cease. If not, then when the bid threshhold has been met, then the rerquest should be deletedor recalled from the email list. Time is wasted looking at these types of requests unncessrily. Thank you.
