Business Response
Restoration Professionals is a caring, family oriented company. We understood that the ******* family was under-insured at $15,000 of coverage and took that into consideration before performing any work for the ******* family. We explained their limits to them as well and they hired Restoration Professionals and signed our service agreement. Our contents manager met with the ******** on a Saturday to go through their contents with them. He explained to the ******** which of their contents were restorable and which were not. The ******** authorized Restoration Professionals to restore many contents and they also requested that Restoration Professionals dispose of many contents that they wanted to replace. Restoration Professionals advised the ******* family that it would be more costly to replace those contents versus restoring them. The ******** were billed for the emergency pack out of their fire and water damaged contents, the cleaning/specialty restoration services of their contents, supplies used, climate controlled storage and the delivery/pack back of their contents. Along with this the ******** received a bill from a garment restoration company whose services were authorized by the ******** after they were provided with a price for services. The ******** were dissatisfied upon receiving Restoration Professionals bill for $11,818.83 which included the garment restoration invoice and the ******** refused to pay that amount. Restoration Professionals negotiated with the garment restoration company to give the ******** a discount and Restoration Professionals also gave the ******** a considerable discount making our final invoice $10,384.65. Restoration Professionals feels that we have been very reasonable and are looking to resolve this while being compensated for the work that was performed.

Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
That is not case for being under insure or not,the case is any thing they cannot clear they will not chargeit in the bill but they still charging us the estimate since the beginning of the process.they hold on to damage item and send us list of but still the price remains the same. With garments we ever told they not to clean they them, but insist that they have on they and they to clean them and some of my white cloth are damaged. In this case they want us to be the complete losses. Which is so sad for paining insurance all this year's. They ever told us not to worry the things that cannot be cleaned will not be on this estimate, but that time they didn't told us we are under insured. We need your help to solve this problem in a good faith. Thanks. ******* family.

Final Business Response
We work with a standard pricing software that the insurance company uses. We have already reduced our pricing and we cannot go any lower. We are sorry that the customer had to deal with a fire and lost many personal belongings. We were hired to do a job and we expect to be paid for the work completed.
