Are you getting a fair deal when it comes to your Cape Town Plumber?
How much should you actually be paying for a simple repair and maintenance
There are two types of payment schedules when dealing with Cape Town Plumbers, both Flat Fee and Hourly Rate. I will discuss the Pros and Cons of both.
First, I want to tell you how a Cape Town Plumber will give you an itemized statement or estimate. You may think this is expensive at first, but keep in mind there is a lot of behind the scenes work including, 10,000 hours of training, the vehicle, fuel, advertising cost, permits etc…
150L Geezer: R2 300
Pipes fitting and valve installation: R480
Testing, Inspection and Permits: R480
Total Labor for hours worked: R600
Total Cost: R3860
So before you think you are only going to spend about R3 000 to R4 000 for an installation of a geezer please consider the work that is actually being done for you.
Now, for Hourly Rates vs Fixed Rates. You are going to want a fixed rate when you need something small done. This is the reason why. Everybody is going to charge you a certain amount just for coming. In this case, lets just say its R380. So its R380 to come out, take a look, and provide his expert opinion. From here, he will tell you how much it will cost. Its in the plumbers benefit to do your job and move on to the next. Whether it takes him 10 minutes or 1 hour, he is going to want to do the job and go. The Fee he charges just for coming out will also give him an incentive to move onto the next job.
The reason they would charge a fixed fee is for some large residential or commercial plumbing jobs. With the jobs, you want to know how much it will cost up front. You don’t want find out the plumbers are taking their time and charging you extra hours. Its one cost and that’s it. Its easy and safe for both parties. Both Cape Town Plumbers and you as the owner of the business or home will be comfortable with this type of deal. You know how much it will cost up front, and they know you are okay with that cost. Many times, people are unwilling to pay after the work is done because they deem the cost to be too high. This protects everyone involved and your Cape Town Plumber loves it.
Regardless of what you choose, make sure to get an estimate or quote up front. Any and all good Cape Town Plumbers will give you a very close idea of what the price of the job should cost. If they don’t, simply move onto the next San Francisco Plumber.
