Charges for Estimates on Mods

Funny...about 3-4 years ago we used to joke that all custom programming cost $3K. Guess it has become a bigger profit center or they are too busy with other things and set the price higher to discourage lightweight requests.

I have three sitting in my inbox now. No charges for the estimates,
but it takes a dog's age to get them, and oddly enough, they all run
about $8K, no matter what I ask for.

Hi Group,
For those of you that have ever inquired about custom programming, have
you ever been charged for an estimate?
No, never been charged for receiving estimate only. it takes 3 weeks to get an estimate.
