Why can you not give me a price over the phone?

If we gave customers prices without taking the time required to calculate project correctly the customer would always be quoted a lot more than they should because as a business we cannot take the risk of running projects at a loss.  The 24 hours we request to provide a quotation gives us the time to work out all the variables and give the customer the best possible price first time!
