@Evan Bell - why would you want to work with someone who doesn't get back to you as promised? If they don't want to earn your business why would they want to keep your business?
Just move on. If someone isn't motivated to send you a bid, he's not the person you want to work with.
Give them a poke or two. If they don't send it, you don't want to work with someone you have to chase. I have found out however that contractors thought they sent me bids, only to find out they had my email address wrong.
@Brie Schmidt and @Aaron McGinnis - thanks for the replies. This was my exact thought as well. It's been so long since we did our last flip that I didn't know if this is just how contractors operate now since the majority of those I met with are being so flaky. These words have passed my lips a few times over the last week and a half, "If they can't even get us a bid when they say they will, how could we ever expect them finish the job when they say they will?"
@Brian Pulaski - I have given at least a couple pokes to each of the contractors dragging their feet. I think it may be time to pick one of the two who we've actually received bids from and get this project started.
Hi I’m a general contractor in the New England area and I understand that it’s very frustrating I would agree with what everybody is saying if you try to couple times to get an estimate and don’t get one, move on..
