"This is the second time I have used them They are so nice, and they work quickly and very efficiently. Highly recommend this Company. Will definitely use again.

"prompt reply, arrived early (a positive thing), loaded all my junk, took extra as they noted I was under their volume estimation (very cool - I can always find more" junk to dispose!). Nice truck, uniformed staff. Will use again and again. Totally worth the money - and to not have to go to the transfer station...

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!

They removed everything we asked them to remove. They had a pick-up truck with an attached trailer and were able to move a significant amount of unwanted items from our garage. I would recommend Muse metals and would use there services again if needed.

Two men arrived -and it was snowing - though if they had arrived on time, they would have missed the snow - but they removed everything I needed taken out of my space in about an hour including a number of heavy items, and numerous small bundles. They were really polite and pleasant and neat! I only mention the start time to remind people that there is a variable factor in how long jobs take so each start time may be influenced by the job before theirs

I was not impressed with them at all. I had work that should have been included in the deal, but before it was complete, they told me I had reached my limit. When I had spoken with her over the phone prior to the appointment, I was under the impression that everything could be hauled off. I was told they would fill a pick up truck which they did not even have with them. They were completely unprofessional and I will not be using them again in the future.

They called to say they would be late, which was appreciated, except that they were not late.... so my quick run to the store became an inconvenience. The price was also more than I expected. I had more trash than the promotional coupon I had would cover so I paid retail for the difference. In the end I broke even had I gone with another competitor that did not have any specials going on, but that came out to provide me a bid based on what they saw.
They were very polite and did a good job of clearing out the trash and leaving the area neat. I'd use them again, I'd just be more cautions about calculating the amount of trash first.

The office called back right away after I purchased a coupon special. They made the appointment exactly when I needed it even though it was last minute. The woman was very friendly and professional. The day of the job I was called about 25 minutes prior to let me know they were on their way. Three men showed up and promptly removed everything I asked from my basement. They were quick and courteous. It was a great experience and I would recommend them to others and use again for future projects.

Oh Sorry, I kind of already said that in the paragraph above. But

did everything that they said they would do. Called me ahead of time to give me a heads up they were on the way. When they got there, they introduced themselves to me, came into the house & evaluated the job & got busy. They were very polite, professional & as I said completed the job with a sense of purpose so they could go to their next job. They were careful not to scratch, bump or bruise or take any of the paint off the walls or front door when they were taking the furniture out the front door. They left no crumbs behind. The price was very fair for the service they did. They said thank you & please let us know if we can serve you again & tell your friends & family about our company. We will be more than happy to come & haul away stuff that people don't need or consider junk. As I said I will recommend your company to friends & family in the future if there is a need. Thanks so much
