Forum Title: If You Quote a Job, Are You Obligated to Do it?
Hi guys, A few months ago this construction company that we have done a few jobs for got me to quote a pretty giant job. Im pretty sure I quoted it so that we will make our monies worth, but the more I look at it, the more I don't want it. They have not told me yet whether I have won the job, but im expecting to hear from them soon. Is it legal to withdraw my quote? What they usually do is tell me they want to move forward with the quote and ask me to sign their purchase order for it. Could I just tell them I'm not available any more and not sign their order? Or am I legally obligated to know perform that work at the quoted price, or find someone who is willing to do it for the same price? Any feedback would be great. If worst comes to worse, Ill just take the job and no sweat off anyones back. But If its well within my rights to let them know Im no longer available that would help. Im in Ontario Canada, maybe the laws for this are different depending on location.

I would think you are under no obligation whatsoever if no contract has been signed. Scheduling conflicts arise all the time that prevent me from taking a job I?ve bid on. The only issue might be the potential loss of future work from them if refusing to move ahead on your part causes them problems.
