     Without moving from source to source, you can often improve your price or features by negotiating with a chosen vendor: “Could you do it for this much? That’s all the budget will allow.”

     Owner-builder Jeff R. of Derry, NH, who is a professional purchasing agent, uses this technique to advantage:

     “I got the best price on a well, $4,500, and the pump portion was $2,000. Then I said I need to drill two wells, and what would be the price for doing two? I got $500 off. Then I didn’t need a pump on the second well, which saved me $2,000 more. Then I asked what the terms were for payment in 30 days. ‘Net’, they said. If I pay in 10 days? One of the companies gave me 5% off. Then I said, ‘what about instant cash?’ And I got 10% off.”

     Also, when you are quoted a flat rate, break it down into units and get the sub to honor the price per unit if units change.
