Charge to rehang microwave

7 posts in this topic

How much would one quote a job to rehang a M/W above a stove.   Property management company called me to diagnose a refrigerator, range & microwave that was recovered from an eviction theft.   I charged a single diagnostic charge for all three & prepared a quote for repairs on the range Burner not working & door trim needs replacing & a rehang of the M/W. 

 

Realtor just wants the M/W oven (it works) rehung.   Requires a 2nd trip to the residence.

$85 plus parts.

If you have to go there to make sure it has all the parts and then go get them $125.

I'd probably tell her how much cheaper she'd be able to get it done by handyman. They probably have them.

Total bill for 3 trips, 4 appliances & one  rehang is $175.    They think it is way to high,  I think it should be higher.   See if I collect.   Property management has always complained about my 10% off Blue Book price & is always slow to pay.  Keep you updated.

You are being screwed and not charging enough. I would dump those scabs unless you are desperate for work.  Some Property management companies think they should pay handyman wages for appliance repair.

I charge by the book & 10% off.   I give them a good price once in a while.  Always get paid, just not timely.    It is good for my reputation to service & put up with the annoying remarks.    As always I respond by giving a copy of the price book page I quote the price from.    With the rehang I did not have a direct quote, just gave them a copy of the microwave price page so she could do a price comparison.   Just mentioning they complain all the time.    One of these times I going to ask how much they charge to manage a property.   :rolleyes:
