Phil,

I don't suffer from unfair competition very often, mainly because my customers know I am fair with my charges.
Just occasionly though, usually for the city, I lose out to a contractor that hasn't detailed his quote, very similar to the Bingley Hall scenario.

I always give very detailed quotes that say as much about what isn't included as they do about what is, this is mostly for my own protection but also leaves no doubt about what I am quoting for.
Some contractors must say simply "To carry out Job XY as loosely discussed on site 6 months ago" for which they quote the lowest price. No one knows what the hell is included but they get the job anyway due to the lowest price wins rule.
So no surprise when it turns out that they only quoted for half the job and then they get the rest as extra's.
