Complaint: When I called this company and asked for an ESTIMATE for a repair to one of my doors I was not told there would be a charge for the estimate. I called R&S and asked for an ESTIMATE to repair one of my roll up doors. The woman on the phone told me she would send some one by to have a look that same day. ***** showed up about 15 min. later and had a look at the door. He wrote on his paperwork that he arrived at 9:45 and left at 10:00 am. Today I received a bill for $200.00 for his estimate. I called and spoke to a manager about how I was never told that there would be a charge for the estimate, and his response was "you never asked" I told him that in most business' an estimate is free and that if it is the policy of R&S then they should tell people on the phone. The manager gave me a line about when he rents a forklift, he is never told the charges until after he returns the forklift. I explained that I was not renting his man, but simply trying to get a cost estimate for the repair. He then told me Sears charged him $250.00 to come to his home to look at his refrigerator, and when I asked him if he had not asked how much it cost before the guy came out he told me no. So I asked him again why, if he was upset with the way Sears handled him, would he do the same thing and simply not tell people that there is a $200.00 charge for 15 mins. of work? He went back to his "you didn't ask" line and told me he would remove the $200.00 charge only if I used him to repair the door for $1700.00. When he first called with the estimate, he was charging $1500.00 and did not mention to me that was the price AFTER the $200.00 credit. I feel the business is deceiving people when they don't let the customer know in advance that there is a charge for an estimate. Lastly, the manager was contradictory when he first told me that they do let people know there is a charge (this did not happen or I would not have used them) and when he said "well you didn't ask if there was a charge" How can it be both? He was just trying to collect a fee that was not disclosed at the time of the request. I think an informed customer is going to weigh the cost of having someone come out for an estimate if they know in advance of the charge. By not saying anything about the charge, this company is collecting money without the customers knowledge.
Desired Settlement: I would like a full refund for the service charge since I was not informed about it in the first place. If not a full refund, a partial refund would be good.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/10/07) */ Customer called on September 25, 2013 and said he had a roll up door that would not close and needed someone to come out. We sent a repairman out right away. He did not ask for an estimate or our hhourly rate. We quote our rates if the customer rrequests them. If he had asked for an estimate we would not have sent a repairman. We would have ssent our estimator which there is not charge, but since we sent our repairman there was a charge for the service. Final Consumer Response /* (3000, 7, 2013/10/09) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) This response is not true. I asked for an estimate. The door was closed and did work, just not correctly. I asked for an estimate to have it repaired. I feel that they sent a repairman so quickly because one was already in the area, and therefore it was the decision of the company to send a repairman and not an estimator. I never asked about rates because I was only asking for an estimate at the time since the door was not totally broken. I feel like the company should do the right thing and give a refund of the total billed amount.
