Jones and Sons Plumbing takes pride in our ability to charge less than other competitors. Small company, less overhead, lower prices. We are a state licensed plumbing company. We are completely insured. Here are some questions and answers that are common when picking a plumber.
Q: What is the difference between "hourly rate" and "flat rate" ?
A: Hourly rate is charged by the hour. Jones and Sons charges $99.00 per hour in most cases. Jones and Sons does not charge a travel fee or "service call" on top of the hourly rate. The time starts when we arrive at your door. Materials are charged for separately. So, if we change a flapper, in the toilet, we would charge for time and the flapper. We're going to check all the toilets in the house. With discounts, this could be done for $99.00 (or less) + 6.95 (flapper). Discounts come in the way of coupons and past customer history.
Flat rate is the "book" price. Some companies charge a fee to show up at the door. Let's say $60.00. They will look at the problem, open up a book, and show you a price and give you the decision of whether or not to fix it or pay the dianostic fee and try another option.
Jones and Sons believes that our way saves you money!
Q: Does Jones and Sons ever charge a flat rate?
A: We quote rates over the phone. For instance, replacing a water heater is often "quoted". We charge according to the location and size of the heater. The average price is, about, $1100 for a 40 gallon residential heater. Stoppages can be quoted over the phone. In most cases, you know what the price is before we get to your home.
