Fixed prices?:
My experience has always been that a fixed price never works out fairly and I lose money.
The job always changes along the way and more things are added or many more design changes than expected happens.
So we work on running hours instead, according to the terms above.
If you still insist on getting a fixed price for the whole job I will calculate on a nightmare scenario and give you a quote on that.
