"I scheduled an appointment with
and they arrived in the scheduled window and gave me a quote to remove the items. I accepted the quote and" they took the items away. Very smooth process.

-James W.

"There was some confusion about the address where the work was to be performed. Once that was straightened out, it was a great experience. The workers were courteous," professional and completed the task in much less time than I expected. I would strongly recommend them and plan to use them in the future.

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.

I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.


You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.




Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

Hauling reviews in Pell City


Communication was great, by phone, text. Was on time and wanted to come early to start my job. Everything went well, I was very happy when they left and my back yard looked great. Good Job.

Dealing with
Pell City Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
was a pleasure from the start. I submitted a contact form online and a few hours later
Pell City Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
called to discuss my project. I had a tight window of when the work could be done and we were able to schedule it for the next day on short notice. They called with an update detailing when they'd be at the house and then when they got there they got right to work. They were very up front about pricing and estimating the costs, which took any guessing of the final bill out of the equation. They were very friendly and were able to squeeze a ton of stuff into a quarter of a truck. Would definitely use them again when the junk starts to accumulate!

We initially booked
Pell City Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
Homes based on multiple positive reviews on the above mentioned moving help website.
The money was paid in advance to the online company, and I was provided with a payment code to give the movers once the job was completed.
My wife and I had used this website in the past for a previous move, and had had good results.
We never received a call from
Pell City Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
Homes. Not one. (By comparison, the company we hired to help us unload at our destination in another state called us within 2 hours of booking them on the same website.)
I called them about 7 days ahead of the scheduled move date to make sure everything was OK and they were aware they had a job booked. I'm not certain who specifically answered the phone, but there was no "hello", or anything to identify that I had, in fact, reached the right company. Just a "yeah?"
very unprofessional.
After confirming that I had, in fact reached
Pell City Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
, the man on the phone confirmed that he had me scheduled for a moving date that was a full 8 days later than the one specified during the booking (I double checked my reservations online just to be sure. He had the wrong date by over a week). Once we had the dates straightened out, and confirmed the time of the move as 10 AM, he took my number and said "My brother is the one that handles this stuff, he'll call you back".
I never received a call back. ever.
I did call a couple times to leave messages on the company voicemail, but none of them were ever returned.
The day of the move, a Thursday, 10 AM came and went... I called and left 3 messages between 9:30 and 12:00. Not a single one was ever returned.
I finally reached a lady on the phone around 1:00 pm. She said she didn't handle any of the moving stuff, and gave me a cell phone number to call, which put me back in touch with the original man I had spoken with. He simply said "Oh, my brother never called you? What's your number, I'll call him and have him call you back".
Number provided again... No return call ever came.
My wife and I packed a 26 foot moving truck by ourselves. Including a refrigerator and other heavy appliances. It took us about a day and a half, and delayed us arriving at our destination for our scheduled unloading with another moving company by a full day.
I'm not sure why
Pell City Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
has so many positive reviews on movinghelp.com. As far as we are concerned, they are unprofessional, don't care about their company image, or the clients who arrange for them to provide services. If you're looking for movers to help you out, we recommend you look elsewhere.

contacted me the morning after I purchased the service through the Angie's List web site. He and his partner were able to come out the same day. They loaded the materials that I had stacked on the driveway and took them to the dump. They even swept up the area! They did a great job.

found a better deal for me and saved me time and money! He also followed up after and sent me a receipt for items I can write off. This company exceeded my expectations in every way. They are so professional. I wish every company was like them!

showed up on time, was friendly and work quickly to load the truck. Also offered helpful advice. Great job,
- matthew D.

The guys showed up on time and estimated that the amount of debris was higher than the Big Deal I paid for through Angie's List. I agreed to pay the additional amount to remove all items. The estimate made of the volume of debris was very accurate. Great service.
- Allen M.

They called in the morning to say they were running late and would be arriving about an hour later than the agreed upon time. When they arrived, we walked through the house and I showed them which items were staying and which were going. They then quoted a price for me based on the amount of stuff i had and how much room it would take up on their truck. They began moving the items out, being very careful not to bump into the walls. They really did a good job with getting all the bulky furniture through the house with minimal damage. At some point they did call their team leader/manager to help move things along as it seemed to take longer than anticipated. Luckily I did not have anywhere else to go that day. They finished and were on their way in a few hours. Overall it was a good experience.
