I go a few days without a call, then I get a few, & sometimes I get a weeks worth in a day. I have never had a day like today. Have not had a job other than telephone repairs for last few days. Going into big city for personal business early this morning when I get a call about a warm refer in an RV. Make an appointment for 1 pm. Have a mother of my wife's friend wanting me to hang a new light over her sink a block away so I scheduled it for afterwards.
Get to the RV & have to condemn 10 cu ft whirlpool that was installed a year ago in the RV. Not there 15 minutes, tell customer that it is not worth doing seale system work as a unit that small can be purchased for about $350. He asks me to buy one for him. I tell him I will stop by Lowes & shop one for him But he has to come purchase it after he gets off of work. I would come back in the evening & help pull the old one out & install new one. I show him How to do it.
He gives me $30 on the spot for my time. I go & do the light hang, charge $65 for 15 minutes work, get paid $90. Go to Lowes do my business, needed some supplies anyway.
Get a call for an icemaker that is leaking, make that call turns out a frozen defrost drain, simple top freezer whirlpool with nothing in the freezer & unit on a tile floor. Piece of cake job not much ice & unit just came out of a defrost cycle. $150 clear money & very satisfied customer, vacuumed condenser while I was there.
I am 5 minutes from RV job, call and say I'm coming. Arrive & find the dude already has the condemned one on ground outside & new unit installed. He is so appreciative for my service (Did Not really do anything) He gives me a $100 bill.
$370 clear for less than 20 miles windshield time & 3 hours Max. I like days like this, Not a record revenue day, nice nonetheless. Kinda makes up for the 2nd trip days.
