How Often Do You Get Price Shopping Calls?

We get these calls 3 -4 times a month, how much to install my cameras I already bought. I tell them it is not something we bid or do flat rate, it is XX amount per hour for 2 guys, regardless of time. Never had anyone bite. It seems to get them off the phone quicker than "We don't do that".

So I get the call today, and after I state the rate, the guy repeats the amount like in total shock.

Long story short, he reveals his friend bought the cameras and asked him to install. So he is calling around to see how much he should charge his friend. Really? I thought I was being pranked...
