How far will you go??

Recommended Posts

Got a call the other day.. customer has a few windows in his home he would like tinted. The job is two hours away.. I'd really rather not do it, but if his neighbor gets his windows tinted, and his brother gets his tinted, and so forth... in the end, it's worth it.

Do you have a limit on either the distance you will travel, or the size of the job?? Granted, you're not going to travel 5 hours, but I've always thought 2 hours give or take is about how far I want to go for any job.. but then again, I'm still just starting out and I'd h@te to turn away any work when this is, IMO, a big referal driven business.

What to do... what to do...

Bid out your time involved. We pretty much go all over the state as long as the price is right.

Last year we did 22 Bank of America's throughout Texas. Farthest we traveled was to the border, a five hour drive.

I factor in travel time and the guys staying overnight
