Complaint: Any Hour charged more than double the amount of their bid with no explanation. They refuse to return any phone calls regarding the charges. Any Hour gave me a bid to replace an electrical panel for $700. Once work was completed, the charge was for $1542, citing the use of a more expensive panel. I researched and the panel that was used retails at Home Depot for $63.97, not $800 as the tech implied. They also ran approximately 8 feet of wire for a circuit to a receptacle I had installed myself, using materials I purchased. For this ($10 in materials and 30 minutes worth of work), they charged $319. They also ran a new wire for an oven circuit (approximately 25 feet of wire through unfinished space that took less than 2 hours), for which they charged $679. Overall, the tech spent 7 hours working and used $186.94 in materials (retail for all wires, panel, circuit breakers, etc at Home Depot). The original charges of $2440 were reduced to $2069 when I complained, but further research indicated they had engaged in flagrant price gouging. The charges amount to $269/hour, compared to competitor's rates of $65-$75/hour. Bids received after the fact indicate a fair price for this work would be $900-$1000. Various other bids have also indicated that the work was not completed to code and no permits were pulled, which appears to be a violation of Salt Lake City ordinance. Calls to various employees of this company have gone unanswered.
Desired Settlement: I would like $1169 refunded to me. This is the difference between what I paid and what a fair and reasonable amount ($900) is.

Complaint: Any hour tech came and said that if I didn't get 6500 work, my house would burn down and he said he needed full payment upfront before he would start. After I gave ** half of the money, my brother called concerned about the cost and they told him that Rocky Mountain Power did so much work, that the quote could actually be done for half. I called Rocky Mountain Power and they verified that they simply turned the power off and then on again with no reference to removing meter clip to fix any meter. They did none of the work on the original invoice and came out and wasted 4 hours misdiagnosing and did not fix my problem of simply one wall did not have electricity. I kept asking for an invoice for my 3304.00 and *** (tech) would not provide one. I had to keep calling and finally got an email with a copy of the quote I originally signed. A huge red light I found that lines were added in AFTER without my consent. The paper makes it look like I signed for the other work I had never seen that read, "Fix meter, diagnose inside circuits and change needed breakers." THAT is what they charged me 3304.00! Another reputable company came and said that the work they did was worth no more than 300 and the parts less than 40.00. He was here for 4 hours. They charged me 741.00/hour for labor! And problem not fixed. I kept calling them to fix the problem. They kept cancelling to come back out. They said they already did 3300.00 of work and I would have to pay an addition 266.00 to actually fix my problem! They fixed the problem 2 WEEKS after I called them. I was referred to a company ** ******** to be an ethical company. ** looked at the paperwork and sadly told me that none of the work on the original quote needed to be done. My house was not in danger of burning down and that worst, it would have never fixed the problem (as I found out with the extra 266.00 I had to pay.) I I wrote AHS a letter complaint about my 3304.00, when I really should have just been charged 266.00. They also broke my wall. I sent them a picture of it and was assured a call back. I never received one. I wrote them an email advising them of the gross over charge and offered to pay them a hugely overblown amount of 150/hour labor (50-70 is the usual price for electrician labor ) I said I would pay them for 10 hours (when they were only here 4) and 200.00 parts (less than 40.00 parts were used) and to please refund me the difference. I got no call back at all. I called for a month and could not get a call back from the manager, like I was promised. ** ******** (the good company) was so shocked of what happened to me that they called ******* Approved themselves. Mr ******* himself called me and was so shocked he asked if he could follow up with the story. I asked a friend to call AHS about their unethical charge and he got a call back the next day. I had been trying for a month. They advised him that their position is that she signed papers and it is valid that she should have to pay whether they did the work or not. Can you believe it. They kept stringing along my friend saying they would look at the invoice and see what could be done so they could pass the time of your review when their accreditation was on suspension. Until my friend called, I would have been one of the many customers that tried to get a call back from a manager that AHS simply ignored. I am a single woman who doesn't know much about electricity who AHS used a scared tactic of telling me my house would burn down without the work and telling me that they needed all the money upfront before they would start working. Good thing I only gave them half to start. This is an unethical company that needs to be reported. I see by the other complaints that they have taken other people for services not rendered too. Basically, their stance is if you sign anything, they are not obligated to come back and do the work you signed for. Also, their original quote was twice what other companies are charging. I ask only to be treated fairly. This is an unethical company with unethical practices.
Desired Settlement: I offered to pay them 10 hours at 150.00 and 200 parts. (keep in mind they were here for 4 hours and less than 40 in parts was spent, AND it didn't fix my problem. I offer this generous offer and ask they only refund me the difference of 1604.00 for work that was never done. I think I am being more than fair to a company that took advantage of someone who doesn't know much about these things.
