    hi fellow mommies, i was wondering if u all wanna join forces together to wrestle greater bargaining power from the same contractor. We can each source for 2 to 3 quotes and compare notes then ask for bulk discount since there are quite a few of us who need to install window grilles bcoz of our bb. Can we do this before the GST increase to add more savings pls?

    fyi, i already called up one and asked him whether he can give even better price if there are 5 of us (and each of us can choose own design n type etc). He says most certainly.

    so how, mommies?

    hi michele, hw's the std of ur contractor?? if its good i would like to join too.

    ribenagr8rs, i got a quote at imm oso at ard 1k for 5rm for 20 panels. but heard from one of my fren that she done hers at $700plus only. too bad i wasnt able to get her contact.
  10. mammypoko

    mammypoko Member

    ribenagr8s, do u think u can negotiate w your present contractor whether he can lower px to $700plus if there are 3 to 5 of us?

    May: my present contact didn't make best offer yet n it's a cold contact i got from some mailer i got in my letterbox.
  11. ribenagr8s

    ribenagr8s Member

    ok. I will contac him tonight. Confirm the three of us first? Mammy, may and me?

    I am doing aluminium... cheaper. you gals too?
  12. ribenagr8s

    ribenagr8s Member

    just contacted him.... told him about doing three places at one time. he cant offer the price any lower. Sorry. I will have the grilles put up nex week. My boy is getting more active by the day.

    Hi Teenie
    Can I have his contact? Will they come down and do a quote for free? We are not obliged after they given a quote? Or do they charge you transportation fee? Can you PM me the contact also? Can I quote your name for any discount? I am thinking of doing the grilles up at my mom's place. It is a condo, so the colour and design got to adhere to the guidelines of the management. Thanks in advance.

    Yes he will come down to quote the price, he didn't charge us when he came down to quote for my mum's house & he even come second time to show my sis the materials & design so in the end my sis confirmed using him on the second appt

    you can jus tell him tiong bahru that one recommend you cos I also don't know him well its recommended by my colleague, bt since its recommended I am sure he will give you good price.

    freezeat2 Member

    Hi mommies
    I have asked one contractor for the quote of black powder coated window grills. He quoted $6.50 per square foot for the basic horizontal stripes and $10 per square foot for the more complicated ones. How about those of you who have installed window grills? Is the price reasonable?
