Customer Question
This is a bid...

This is a bid document for trusses---I gave them money as a down payment but they were to give me a bid so that I could either accept or not. the amount of the cost to construct the truss my be over or our under priced. If over I should have the write to not purchase their truss and take a lower. bid form another company. This is in the state of Florida They are way over priced compared to a competing vendor

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

They want to keep the whole deposit and not refund nothing and it say 15% of the total price or a 500 minimum or $500.00 will be by the purchaser for job cancellation

Lawyer's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Business Law Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
