    We have all thought about it, but has anyone actually implemented a fee for a customer quote?

    Sounds like a great way to not get customers

    I haven't, but I've been tempted. I have one company that is constantly asking for quotes, and they rarely take me up on the bids. I often wonder if they are using me for a pricing gauge.

    One thing I have added to my paperwork is a statement that says, "This price is only valid for 30 days from submission date."
    If they come back 2 months later, they're getting a new number.
