My faher had a limb take out is power line going to his house. An electrician that was passing by stopped. My father asked for an estimate, and the electrician said we don't give estimates, we tell you what it will cost. The price to replace everything from the meter box and up was $ 1,200. My father said yes because he knew electricians charged alot. Well he found out the next day that his neighbor had the same things replaced on his house during an ice storm 6 months prior. His bill was $431. Why the big difference? Both were an emergency to get fixed. My father was even charged $39 for aservice call, but the electrician was driving by and stopped when he seen the wires on the ground. Can anyone tell me why the BIG differencein price. Thank you
Why the different prices?
