Installation Under House


Hello,

I am new to this site. I am getting ready to do a job for a guy that wants me to install installation under his house. I will have someone to help me with it as well. I was wondering what I should charge by hour for this type of work?

Thanks.

For installing installation I would charge the same as insulation.

Re: Installation Under House


I would charge more than that but less than this. You must be careful not to undercharge for the undercariage but overcharging will get you into the attic and that would not solve the customers problem.

You could just get the charger from the garage and plug it in. If the guage doesn't move you know you're fully charged and everything is fine. Of course it's possible the job won't take a charge in which case you need a replacement.

If you need a replacement charge you might want to consider a Visa because it has fewer letters than MasterCard and that makes it more efficient and efficiency is good.

Of course this all assumes you have not yet Mastered your Charge, and it seems that is where you started.

Youre splitting hairs, he's installing installation, not the insulation. He cant install installation for free can he? If the customer wants the installation installed and the insulation installed then full price, otherwise its half price.

Way too complicated, he should just reverse charge it.

No i think I pretty much understand what is going on here. He wants to charge for the installation, but if he is not installing it , why would he buy insulation that he is not going to install? Pricing something is usually based on the assumption that your going to do something.

Now that i think about it he did say someone is helping install the installation so he should at least charge for that persons help?

How much do you charge for someone helping you with an installation?

Re: Installation Under House


To the OP, after 100 posts they give you a secret password, then you can request an ACME Pricing Kit, $19.99

Re: Installation Under House


I am going to assume that the OP knows exactly what he is talking about and none of the rest of you guys do.

I looked up the word "installation" it is not a noun. Therefore I have concluded that the OP has developed a new and amazing product he is calling "installation". Having us all in a quandary about and asking ourselves "what is installation?"

This is a grand marketing ploy on his part and I for one will not be a party to a superior intellect's mind games.

I hope this is a help and I hope the world is now safe from your evil genius.

Andy.

Yur gonna install that pink stuff under de house?! ....you wanna give them rodents a place to live or sumthin?

Ask the pink the panther what he charges....last time i checked he was in the hospital on "Family Guy" poor bugger died from to much fiberglass in his lungs....sad story.

For the sake of the pink panther, install for free, you'll be doing him the favor
