Okay for the custom guys who "fab" their cabinets have you ever bid a job against someone who supplys "factory" and if so how do you fair price wise. The reason I ask I bid a job and was 7000.00 over a custom guy BUT .08 above my cost on the product and VERY comp on install. I have never in 5 years been beat out buy shop built cabinet so Im just wondering. Just a fyi it was apples to apples the whole way.

If it is a guy building out of his garage its common, but a real shop with employees and shop-showroom?
You can sell yourself with consistent and reliable delivery and finishes, something most smaller guys can't deliver
