At HLH Inc., "Free Estimates" means:
We’ll come out, look at your situation, give you our honest opinion, and it doesn’t cost you anything. Sometimes, we can give you tips on how to deal with it on your own…
If we believe that we have a solution for you, the written estimate is free also, with no pressure to sign a contract.
Our experience has been that a handshake agreement is often worth more than a signature.
