I had that experience was it 3 years ago, went to a mid summer farm show and visited all 15 or so buildiers that were there. Most had a wife or girlfriend manning the booth, handing out business cards. Really didn't get a good feeling for the places. Talked to a few I really liked, said I'm letting air out of the tires to get the combine in the shed, am really serious... Only one called me back, so they got the job.
I know what you are talking about.
I think a lot of businesses have found on-line inquiries tend to be tire kickers, and not serious, so during busy times those get put to the back burner? If you are booked up, you need your people building or handling paper orders that are real, not online questions that have a low percent of turning into real orders. It's a catch-22, I can see both sides of that....
On the other hand, you are _way_ late and poor planning on your part to come this time of year and want a building up yet. Esp a year like this, depending on where you live, lot of farmers were planning buildings this summer and the push is on to put all those up, you will find many many over-booked builders at this time of year and will likely end up with a poor or overpriced builder that is 'available' this time of year for a rush job.
Not what you wanted to hear, and don't mean to be ragging on you, but you shoulda been talking with people in July or so if you wanted something up in 2012 yet?
