How many estimates do you think your average customer gets?

And what percentage of them do you think only get one?

I agree- 3- 5 estimates per job. Even my best repeat customers get multiple bids. To keep me honest I guess:) A couple of them only will call us to do the work though. I often tell people to get other estimates. I just sell myself and our business to them after they see who is out there.

I too tell them to get a couple estimates. I don't want to get a job and then have them come back later to think - "is the grass greener on the other side?"
Anyway - I would agree 3-5 is pretty typical.
