I bother to do this so people will now!
I was quoted a price to replace the whole main panel. Scott said it would take 5 or 6 hours. With my permission to save time and money..They only replaced the bus bars and some breakers. they were only here 2 hours and still charged the full amount they quoted. $1000.00. They mislabeled and over amped 2 circuits. These guys are all about the quick buck. Use someone else. $350.00 an hour is Jack.Responce: to his responce: This guy quoted a time/materials to replace the "whole" panel! upon arrival and my approval for them to replace the busbar with the understanding to save me money! and them time!..at the time of payoff..instead this guy smiled widely while he still charged the amount quoted...use someone else..regardless of these other stars Scot receives...
Sir, you were quoted a flat rate price to replace your panel. Everything was replaced except the metal cabinet which could not be removed without extensive damage. The bus bars and breakers make up the entire functional system. We also installed a new panel door and every singe part from the new panel into the existing metal box. You had 2 licensed electricians working, so this is why we completed this job quickly and efficiently. I had told you before the job that it could take 5 to 6 hours (which it often does) however this is why I don't charge by the hour except for troubleshooting. I always charge a flat rate for quoted work. Also we did not over amp any circuits (not even possible). I apologize if we mislabeled any breakers.
