The average person probably doesn’t have extensive knowledge about plumbing systems. So how will they know if they’re being ripped off or not?
There’s a difference between being ripped off and just thinking that the job is simply too expensive. Keep in mind, there are many products and services that are high cost yet worth the money. Being ripped off is when the person you’ve hired is trying to take advantage of you. They are only thinking of themselves.
First and foremost, it all comes down to who you’re working with. If you’ve hired a person that is reputable, of good character, and full of integrity; more than likely you aren’t going to be ripped off. They will communicate clearly, and they will answer your questions completely and honestly.
If a person is trying to rip you off, the first sign is if they go back on their word. They might tell you that they are going to do something, but then they don’t follow through with their promise. They will reply with a lie when you question them.
When the rubber meets the road, you’ll know that you’re being ripped off if the person you’re talking to is untrustworthy. That’s why reputations are so critical when it comes to hiring someone. If you do some research, you will see if the large majority of people who have dealt with the organization are happy with the job they’ve done. Once you’ve done that research you’ll be well on your way to preventing the uncomfortable feeling of being ripped off.
A reputable, honest organization will take steps to demonstrate that they are there to take care of you. One of the things we do at Wisler Plumbing to offer peace of mind is give a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, or you don’t pay. We offer this guarantee for all the products that we install. Most importantly, the staff at Wisler Plumbing are people that you can rely on.
Each of our technicians refers to our Straight Forward Pricing guide before any work has begun. It’s important that our clients know exactly how much they will pay right at the beginning of the job. That way, they won’t have to face the uncomfortable situation where the costs keep rising. Our clients will never have to be concerned about extra expenses because the job took longer than expected. We’ll give you the price in writing, and we will not ask you to pay more than what we quoted you.
Some people charge by the hour and the clock starts right when they get to the client’s home. Then, they see just how long they can take to complete the job so they can run up the bill as much as possible. This is a reflection of the individual’s character—instead of having to deal with those people, stay informed. Don’t let yourself get ripped off by someone untrustworthy.
