I hope I would handle it the way you did.Today I underbid a job.
I still have a website, really well placed in Google Organics.
In this atmosphere I rarely get a call. Don't even answer my phone like a "taxi company" anymore, why bother?
So yesterday a potential customer calls. He names a town and a destination (CLT) and I quote him $60 right off the top of my head.
This morning I'm on the way up to his house and I realized I underbid the job.
When I get to his house, I ran the Google maps to CLT and it came up 28 miles (the short way). That's $72.50 including meter drop.
Now, I'm an ethical business owner. A quote is a quote so I suck it up.
Dude tipped me $12 (20%) so I got paid market rate anyways.
I did the right thing keeping my mouth shut but if he calls back I probably have to admit I made a mistake because I don't want to be locked into a job at this rate.
How would you folks handle this?
