Giving an Estimate Can Be Just That, Giving an Estimate, Which Does Not Give License to Price Gouge

Giving an estimate can be just that: giving an estimate.

I want clients to keep that in mind on occasion.

When some jobs take me to New York City, even now, travel time can be hard to predict.

If many stops are part of the picture, it adds to the uncertainty.

Tempus fugit

In these cases, I give an estimated price for the job based on details that are given to me, and make that clear to the client.

Even when that estimated amount has to go up, it does not give one license to price gouge.
