  • Low cost "cheep" drain co's

    I HAD TO POST THIS !
    I USED TO CHARGE 49.95 FOR A MAIN LINE THOUGH
    A GROUND FLOOR CLEAN OUT IF GOING THOUGH A ROOF VENT, PULLING A TOILET OR ANYTHING ELSE
    EXTRA TO GET ACCESS THE PRICE WENT UP 10.00 TO
    15.00
    WE GOT 23.50 FOR ANY SMALL DRAIN THOUGH CLEAN OUT OR THOUGH THE ROOF VENT,
    IF I HAD TO PULL AND RESIT THE P-TRAP THEN IT WAS EXTRA

    "BUT THAT WAS A WAY BACK IN 1976 THOUGH 1982"

    SINCE THEN THE COST HAS GONE UP TO THE NORMAL PRICE THAT EVERBODY CHARGES
    I FOUND OUT THE ONLY ONE WHO LOSES WHEN YOU ARE THE " CHEEPEST S.O.B." IN TOWN IS THE WORKERS WHO HAVE TO DO THE WORK !

          Cheap drain cleaning advertising is nothing new. They do it in other markets that maybe we just don't study.

          Sometimes referred to as a loss-leader. Taking a loss or breaking even to get to the job and find other things wrong, pressure/sell a customer into other services, or have other things that are not "included" at all in the loss-leader-low price.

          I suppose it can be honestly done. Wal-Mart does it with their end of the aisle, flyer advertised products. They have a calculated percentage that you will purchase something else there with a much higher profit margin. And usually....they're right. They didn't build them all through their loss-leaders.

          But for the majority of the time in the service industry, I find companies practicing this to end up having a higher percentage of dishonesty, unhappy customers, and a constant need in advertising to get new customers for their business as past customers do not prefer this practice on a longterm basis.

          To each his own.
