Fiance and I are in the process of putting carpet in our new house and I’ve been given the job of choosing the carpet, plus the supplier and installer.
I got about 3 quotes from different places on the same carpet. Then, I started haggling! I’m not a haggler, so this was kind of difficult. I called our top choice carpet supplier who had already quoted us. I told him that another company in town was going to do the same carpet and pad, with labor, for 400 dollars less. I kinda sorta lied with that one..it is the same carpet and pad, but it was also quoted at the same price. Anyways, the salesman had the manager call back and it looks like they are going to slash our price by about 200 dollars. Cool! I’ll know at 4pm, they are going to do a consult at our home.
Question for you bees: have you ever had to buy carpet? If so, did you haggle? What was the outcome?
