I am almost certain, "but not 100%"
that my technicians spend as much if not more time in school as a HVAC tech. I do not charge near as much for service calls for service as any of my competitors, because we make up for it in volume. I do not understand why companies need to have high prices to make money.
I am sure they are making more than $10.00 profit.
But we dont work for sears. and since you are sure they make more than $10.00 on a service call , please tell us how much we make
When you are the one that pays a techs wages-buys a service vehicle-and a million dollars insurance coverage- and pays for all of the other costs of running a busniess, you know exactly how much you have to charge for a call.
You may not have noticed , but the costs of fuel to get to each stop has rizen sharply over the past couple of years
and everything associated with fuel has risen also. The costs of workmans comp insu , health insurance for the employees has risen
How much per call do you feel an hvac contractor should loose before you feel you are being charged a fair price.
Do you complain when you buy gas? Do you complain when you go to the grocery store? their prices rise daily-- I 'll bet not
