I was talking with a woman on the phone today who was inquiring about my services and charges. She needs a treadmill moved from one room to another on the same floor, about 15 feet away, and a general maintenance/tune-up as well. I told her I can take care of both and then she started telling me about the company where she had bought her treadmill (which shall remain nameless).
She had called them first and they wanted $395 to move, and then an additional $595 for the general maintenance! Holy crap! I’m totally floored by these numbers. Roughly $1000 to move a treadmill down a small hallway and general maintenance, and 2 crews to do it. I still can’t believe it, and she’s ecstatic that I’m saving her over $700 and that I can do it without 4 people.
