Contractor Mia After Onsite Quotation

Recommended Posts

Before inviting contractor to come onsite for quotation, already stated clearly that the project is small.

Contractor was recommended by someone (who did up their house), and felt the works is not bad.

Contractor knew that the project is small, but after onsite quotation.. we plan to move forward with this contractor... can't believe that contractor give so much excuses eg: will give quotation asap, busy, will give quotation soon, away from singapore, etc. After 1 week, no official quotation came.

Boom... Disappeared.

We do not know why, but we have informed contractor that the project is small. Disappointed !!!

Anyone experience this before??

You have your side story, we also have our side story, some owner disappeared too after giving quotation & drawings, this is commonly human misbehavior :good:

This is him indirectly saying your project is not worth my time, because I have other better renovations on hand that have better profits. Unless you hit him at a timing whereby he don't have any jobs on hand, or your job you offer a high enough price for him to do.

But sometimes cannot blame contractor, because sometimes a job is really not worth doing regardless the pay. On the other hand there are times whereby contractors go up and take measurements discussing quotations etc then suddenly home owner disappear, which indirectly waste the contractor time and effort

this is a blessing in disguise. you rather the contractors disappear and shown no interest in taking you project right from the beginning rather than they delay or mess up your reno right?

there are alot of these blacksheeps around. especially when I asked them for their business reg. number. they gave me another name, telling me they are xxx's sister or brother 's company.

so must be very careful and hardworking with your research..

that's happen mostly for BTOs. i agree. but most of the contractors doesn't like to do open market apartments or sometimes new condos/EC if the condition are good or some private properties are quite nicely done already. . it was communicated before inviting them down - like the project is really small. do you have many projects on hand?. contractors/IDs shouldn't even waste owners' time as well??

how about incidents owners are busy? moreover was recommended by friends/relatives.

and ya, you are right, if they do not have projects.. but it was asked that if they are having many projects on hands and is a small project, before invitation.
