"This is the third time I used them. The first time was to clean out my basement before a move, we had 15 years worth of my husband's "projects" to" remove. The second time and third time was to haul away old furniture. In all instances they were reasonably priced, easy to schedule, punctual and very professional. A+

-Maria G.

B
"Scheduling was fine and they were punctual to the appointment. When saw debris, they explained that there would be more costs for the work. The coupon was not very" specific and did not explain into detail of what they did and did not cover. We didn’t use them and had the deal refunded.

Before you toss it, check the label. Some hazardous items — even batteries and ink cartridges — should be disposed safely, which doesn't mean at the curb! Why?

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.

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.

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.

?
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!

did a great job cleaning out attic. Very clean and neat. Took great care in making sure the job was done right.

It was great. He had to reschedule, but picked up more than what was offered as compensation for rescheduling. He didn't have room on his first trip to pick up everything I needed picked up, but returned without charging me to pickup the rest. He was very helpful and even came inside the house to haul stuff away that I was not able to move by myself.

Services I received were not worth the $400 value let alone the $199 I paid. The weather on the scheduled day was sunny but the coldest day in January. Since the cold was well-forecast I got up early for a hot breakfast and dressed warm. Then the telephone call came at the 8am Monday scheduled arrival time that they wanted to reschedule to another day a week or 2 later. When I said I was ready to do it, she said she had a death in the extended family Friday and she had worked the weekend with the family and was not ready to work with me. Why not call me Saturday or Sunday? I continued to work in garage without them since I was off for the day and ready. When they finally came a week later, they did what they said they would but that was after I had already done half the work! After cleaning the floor and returning the items to the garage, their suggestions were not practical and I had to direct them where to place everything for my convenience.

They were extremely thorough and fast! Got all the garbage out of my backyard in no time and then cleaned off my patio of all the dirt and debris that had kept me from using the space. Beautiful job and a joy to work with them again. Having a lovely Scottish accent is a bonus!!

I was told they would give me a price before they began the work but in the commotion no price was discussed. After they loaded most of the job I asked how much this was going to cost and they said $900. I told them them that was (crazy) too much and that I didn't want to use them for the job. Then they said they would charge me $300 to unload the truck and would leave everything in my driveway. I felt completely scammed and taken advantage of. Would never use these guys again. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

The guys from
Lake Wales Haulers Provider Name Locked
were amazing. Not only were they able to come out the day after I called them, they were punctual and did a great job. The old projection TV in my basement weighed several hundred pounds and when they were not able to get it up the stairs in 1 piece, they disassembled it and took it out that way. Despite the hassle of the TV size, they only charged a $15 surcharge for the hazardous waste disposal fee. I can't say enough good things about my experience with them and will definitely call on them again for any other removal projects I may have.

Couldn't ask for better. Making the appointment was easy. They kept in touch with me until they arrived at the house (my wife was home, I wasn't) and she had nothing but complimentary things to say about them. (A bit unusual, I might add.)
