  • Your calling Me a rip off?

    OK I do this job today teamed up with a local in town plumber
    We had a heavy freak rain storm 5 inches in 20 minutes.

    Got the call from a local auto repair shop. Storm water blew the toilet off it's flange Damaged the flange. Flange and toilet needed to be replaced.
    I was clearing the main sewer and floor drain had sand some rocks
    got them clear gave the owner the bill he goes on a rampage about the bill A big rampage Shop was local so I was not to hard on him $200 bucks. All you plumbers are FU*% rip offs In front of his customers
    Now I'm Pissed
    So I told him about his rip off rates I told him I did not go crazy when you charged me $947.16 to replace my fuel pump in less than an hour
    and your calling me a rip off the fuel pump listed for less than $300 bucks
    you charge me $647.16 for an hours work And you think I'm a rip off? The other plumber gives him a bill of $595. for new toilet and flange install. Guy goes nuts. You Fu%# rip offs
    Mind you the $595 included the new toilet, and flange ring, bolts
    if you added our bill together 795.00 Still less than his one hour fuel pump install. A few of his customers left What a jerk.
    He paid his bills with cash. Told him don't call me again. You won't see him repairing my van again jerk.

    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

    Hi,

    Don't take it to heart man, This economy has brought out the worst in some people.

    Opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one, You showed up, did the work as a respectable person, don't let those fools bring you down,

    Just keep going forward - Jerks will be there tomorrow as well

    BTW: Some people say I am not a real plumber, do I let that bother me? No, In turn I just channel the energy into something positive as you should do as well.

    They are not paying rent to be in your head, so evict those fools ( another words forget about it )

    Hope this helps.

        i had a similar episode with a customer that thought i was too expensive even though i located a sewer line break and showed them where to dig to fix it.

        jump ahead a few months and i get this call saying they were backed up again and could i come over? i asked if the line was ever fixed and she relied, "no". i told here i couldn't get there but i'd let her know IF i could make it in the future. "but i have sewage all over my floors" she whined. i said i'd let her know IF i could make it in the future. she called twice that day with the same "conversation".

        the good news she never called back.

        i'll help someone out if they are truly in need but whiners and their ilk get no compassion from me

                UnClog, if half your customers do not complain about your charges, you are not charging enough. You have to raise your rates where everyone complains. They will keep calling you for your great service, and will say " I know you charge a lot but you do great work."

                    $800.00 cash.

                    the only people that pay that kind of cash are drug dealers and people that didn't pay taxes on that $800.00. for cash they want a discount. i don't do that. he's a car dealer. his whole business could be heading south. piss on him, enjoy the money. breid....................

                      I don't discuss business in front of the owner's customers. I talk to the manager in the office or in the back.

                        The guy going off in front of his own customers shows you his true colors. A professional would have calmly taken you somewhere private and explained he didn't think it would cost quite as much when he decided to call. Regardless of area, your charges and the other plumbers were not out of line by any stretch. It's funny how people resent others trying to make a profit while they can't hide the fact that they're making even more! It's hypocrisy at it's best.

                          I believe that was the owner's decision ,not unclog 's
