Here's one for you guys...

Sent to this property for a bid to pump out basement. I know for a fact that the water has been sitting for atleast 4 months, possibly longer! Full basement measuring 22x75 and water is 54" deep.

What would you bid?

Does it keep on filling ?? Where did or is it coming from. When you bid if you do ( I WOULD NOT) put in that if it starts to fill again that you are NOT providing repump services or if you want to bid to put in multiple sumps on the exterior , that's your business. The biggest problem is does your insurance cover you for that. It looks like a big liability to me . reassign

I would bid it. Find the cost of a septic pumping company to come and pump out so the water is properly disposed of(not in yard).

Bid to have Master Electrician to cut all circuits that were affected, 2 large commercial dehumidifiers for 5 days each, removal of wet contaminated materials, concrete cleaning of walls and flooring to sanitize and application of a sanitizer to the walls/floors/ceilings.

Ballpark of $6-7000.

YES.. I have pumped this basement not once but twice already, then another contractor has pumped it after my second time. We keeping telling them to get the electric turned on; to no prevail. Last time I was at this certain property was in Jan 2014. To be prefectly honest, I'm about done with this certain company anyways and could careless if they get pissed off... But if they approve a ridiculously inflated bid why not collect then tell them to KICK ROCKS!

Pump it and take their money, turn the power on people or I gonna charge you another g note to do it again.

I pumped a house that had 6" of water back in the basement just in the time it took to load the pump - had 4' to begin with.

Cubicle dwellers don't care or don't understand, the water came from somewhere and unless it was a sewer backup, it came from the ground and it will come back.

Ditto I had a property with an inground basement next to a stream. ~ 30 ft away from eachother. When we rolled to property the power was OFF and upon initial inspection I saw 55 gallon drums all around the foundation with wires coming out of them. Low and behold they were sumps for this reason. Upon entering the house the basement had 12" of water in it and I called in with pictures uploaded and was asking for the National to purchase a extension cord to run 2 sumps from the detached garage. NOPE was their answer. " That's the realtors responsibility" I said OK we shall trashout the upstairs and the garage and exterior but NO basement to be done.

BLOWN away they would not spend 20 dollars to start and keep the basement drained. Cubicle monkey was definitely the right term. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX (CFS) Cant Fix Stupid

A reminder to make sure you know what kind of water you are bidding to pump out of the basement. Rain water, black water, etc. Water that has been standing in the basement for for than a few days should not be just pumped out into the yard. Write your bids accordingly.
