Complaint: My name is ********* ****** and I was taken advantage of by Roto-Rooter for the sum of $7,745.00 on June 4, 2014. Came to my house because of a problem with my pipes. On that day he told me that my pipe had collapsed and needed to be replaced after telling me how things needed to be done and it would cost $7,285.00 and would be done on the 5th of June. Being trusting I took him at his word but after talking with people who do this type of work told me I was robbed. After looking into this I called Roto-Rooter on June 6, 2014 to complain. Called in the 12th, 13th, said they would get back to me still no one called so I called again on the 15th of June. 23rd all I got was a breakdown of the bill that I thought was crazy Parts, materials and tax $285.00. The rest was all labor, no way. 3 men showed up at 8AM and was done and gone by 2:30. What was talked about on the first day half of it was to make it seem harder than what is was. I’m a single mom and this took all my savings it wiped me out and I truly believe they took advantage of me and I would like my money back and to come up with what is fair for everyone. OI have sent you all copies of bills and pictures I took to show you what was done and what they broke. Please Help Me.
Desired Settlement: I would like my money back and come up with what is fair for everything
We were called out to 60 Summer Ave on 6/4/2014. We responded the same day and used a sewer camera to determine that Ms. ******'s sewer line neded repairing. The camera used was also used to pinpoint where the problem was located. An estimate of $7,285 was given to Ms. ****** in writting. She agreed and work was scheduled for 6/5/2014. Our policy it to give an up front, written estimate before commencing work. An authorization signature is required before proceeding with work. All work was done to in a professional manner and we warranteed our work for 5 years (Ms. ****** should have a copy of the invoice reflecting the warranty).
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
