I guess it means they will strip them down, decide what needs replacing then quote you from there.

its a bit difficult to say for certain prices for what needs replacing/done over the phone without the actual item there for them to examine though. i dont see how that is being akward really.

Same with Avo.

I expected it tbh.

Just make it clear you don't want any work done until they've stripped them And done a quote
