Good to know

I accidentally got another contractors bid approval order.
Replace 150' of stolen plumbing for $250.
No wonder my bids haven't been getting approved.

That guy is not a contractor and he's definitely not a plumber.

That's just totally disgusting. How a person could even call themselves a contractor submitting numbers like that is beyond me. I wouldn't replace 150 inches let alone feet for that price. What is he going to replace it with garden hose?

They will just steal the plumbing from another property. Sad thing is that the vendor realizes this and doesn't care as long as it gets done on time!

I just got a pre approval for 1700 minus 25% discount to do about 100'. That's about $1300 minus supplies about two days, leaving me with a $200 profit. I kindly put in another bid. They'll be getting more than me for nothing. Bs

I just did a bid that someone bid it @$2,000 for 125' of pex both cold/hot in 1/2 & 50' of 3/4 & to cap baseboards.Good part is you dont need a license in that county for plumbing just Insurance.Bad part 1hr away and its in a crawlspace in most areas 2' high.I told them i wanted $3200 i was told "well that was someone elses bid" well get someone else to do the work.After a 3 days going back and forth we got it and it took 2 days to complete.The house should be demolished and these assholes are replacing stolen plumbing i don't understand it but hey it was a nice job right before Christmas.
