    Re: Prices over the phone ?

    I do phone quotes but once I get there and try and find real problems I stop and say " this is going to need more than what we talked about it will be blah blah to get it done" whenever I don't stop and do this it does turn into a fight at bill time.

      I get that call all the time. Roto Rooter liks to stay $5.00 under my price...lol I always tell the caller "thats because they are not as good as we are so they charge less".
      My price is what it is and NO we cant drop it $5.00 to match Roto Rooter.

        I hate people. Can I cheap you down to play in my family's poop?
        RR sucks most of their techs don't last a year train for 6-8 weeks then off to work. I worked for them for 10 years what waste. I was paying for everything anyway. Why not put my own name on a van and go to work.
        Not have to bail out all the roto noobs on my own gas that messed up.

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

          Like stated earlier, I will give them over the phone, but for running a sewer with cleanouts only.

          Still, need to see the job first.
          ALL the homeowners that call in, know squat about plumbing, so taking their description of what is wrong, is like pissing in the wind. I won't even go to the parts house based on their assumption of what is wrong.

          See the job, then quote a price. They don't like to pay good money for a quality repair? I refer them to Roto-Rooter. EVERYTIME.

          You want cheap plumbing? Sure call these guys. Hope that dollar bill gives your butthole a papercut
