Plumbers in Calgary

When you go out to eat dinner at a restaurant, do you ask the restaurant manager how much he paid for the food on your plate? How much is the pasta, potato’s, etc? Of course not, though everyone expects the cost of the food to be marked up by a large margin.

If you drove to the restaurant, you’d fully expect to pay a trip charges like gas, insurance, as well as a tip to the valet. But when it comes to plumbing, consumers sometimes have unfair expectations. They think, “If I knew how to work a wrench, I could fix plumbing problems myself.” They ask, “That faucet only costs $100 at the store, why are you charging so much to install it?”

More goes into installing a faucet than goes into most dinner at a restaurant. Besides the charge for his expertise, you need to factor in that a plumber has the expense of a plumbing truck, tools, parts, telephone cost, advertising, office staff, operating a local 24 hour emergency service and office rental. Not to mention a plumber is expected to have liability insurance and be well trained to prevent or correct any potential problems that could occur during a service call.

As a consumer, I can understand the fear of overpaying. However, the next time that you hire a local plumber, try to consider all the expenses that go into plumbing work.
