"this must have been a really small truck because I feel like they didn't take any of my trash - probably my fault for overestimating the size but everyone needs" to know how little stuff fits in the truck - it was a total waste of money for me because I still have a ton of stuff to get rid of and could have just paid for a service that would take it all or rented my own truck

"It went horrible, they mentioned a disclosure in a coupon that says price depends on location of the trash. He told me he'd come to my home between 11-3 and" I took off of work waiting around for him. He never showed up and rescheduled. He was then supposed to come out today and when he showed up and seen that I have a high-rise he wanted to charge more money. He didnt even wanna negotiate.

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 were supposed to call me withing a certain time frame after I purchased their Big Deal, but I never heard from them. After a few weeks, I called them, and we scheduled an appointment. On the day of the appointment, they called and cancelled. They said they would call me back to reschedule, but after a few days, when I had not heard from them, I called them again. They scheduled another appointment with me, and when they showed up, it was just 2 people, a man and woman, and a small pickup truck. My son had to help them load the truck since there were only 2 of them. Neither of them would come into the garage to get the items. My son had to bring everything out of the garage for them to take. The way the deal was advertised, it seemed like it was going to be a bigger truck that would take more items, as it said they would take 8 cubic yards of junk and it said on the deal, that they would come in and remove the items. they told me I could pay more for a larger truck, but i just had them take what would fit. I was very disappointed with their service. I wish they had told me ahead of time that they would be coming with a pickup truck so that I could have negotiated for a larger pick up.

Excellent. They did such a great job on 1/22 that I reserved another date on 1/30/15. On both days, the two workers arrived at the designated time and were done in no time. I am cleaning out my home from years of accummulation of "stuff". I was really impressed with how quickly they were able to remove the numerous bags of junk. and furniture I would definitely use their service again and would recommend them to my family and friends. Both workers were courteous and the price for the job was fair. Thanks Angie for listing them.

;kThey were very responsive and got bck to me right away. The only thing I didn't like was that I originally purchased an Angie's List Big Deal for junk removal that included removal of 2 cubic yards. I'm not really sure how much that is, but the ad said about a pick up load. I thought that what I had would fill a pick-up load. I'm not sure how, but they said it was more than what was included in the deal. So I had to pay an additional $69. I was really happy with the job, I just wish there were a better way to tell the price beforehand.

rGot back to us right away when we requested a quote on fixing a long, uphill unpaved driveway. They went out to look at the driveway right away, then got back to us with a quote in a timely manner. We wanted the work done in a fairly short time frame and they finished it on time. They kept to the quote they gave us, and were very professional and courteous when we met them. Nice family owned business - enjoyed working with them
