you dont need to cause offence by declining a visit,
just explain that you can give them a better service if they just tell you the type of sign they need and the dimensions, then you can give them a preliminary estimate before any site visit.
It happens to us a lot, and Shane’s case is probably the exception, but most off the cuff inquiries we get for small stuff, that require a visit, are just what you say, time wasters.
Ask your bank manager to call in and see you about borrowing £100.
and see what his response is…
