All About Irrigation in Flowery Branch, GA Complaint - Did not honor estimate
FLOWERY BRANCH,, GEORGIA -- We called "All About Irrigation in Flowery Branch, GA. for an estimate for a repair of our irrigation system. We were told it would be $75 for service call and $75 an hour for one man or $85 an hour for two men. We agreed. On May 18, 2011, they showed up to make the repairs. The first man showed the other one where to dig and then left. He returned 1/2 hour later and made the pipe repair. They were here one hour and 10 minutes in total, that included my writing the check and the boss taking three phone calls. According to the estimate the bill should be $160+ parts. They charged $75 for service call, $170 labor($85/hr for each man!)and $15 parts for a total of $260. When I questioned the bill, he said, "Hey man, we could have drug this job out all day". He did deduct $20 due to my protest, for a total of $240---still $65 more than it should be.
They made the repair as I ask, but they for one thing must thing I am stupid. $75 for an hour is fair and $85 for two men, but not each and excepily when one is a college student. I would be surprised if he was paid over $10.
