4) If you give me a quote, will you ever exceed that price?
a. Not for the work listed on the quote.
b. Sometimes we will run into unusual situations after we start the job that may require additional work. We will always stop, inform you of the situation and complete another quote for any price changes. We will always present them to you for approval.
5) What is your normal response time?
a. For service calls that are scheduled during normal business hours, we try and provide all of our clients with a 2 hour “window of time” for us to arrive. This allows you the consumer time to make any necessary arrangements and allows our Technicians plenty of time to complete any unexpected repairs on their previous calls.
