There are many items like Tyvek suits, Respirator, Respirator cartridge, cleaning towels gloves, trash bags. Being billed at very high price. While I'm sure they used these items. Being these items were not listed on schedule of fees, the price of these is negotiable correct? Should I be charged for each of these little items. I did not agree to just time and material I agreed to a schedule of fees for things listed on the schedule?
Also, they charged per SF to remove insulation and at the same time charged me an Hr rate and disposal fee. SF charge for removing insulation was not listed on schedule of fees. I'm I wrong in assuming that the labor part of removing the insulation should be billed at the schedule of fees rate for Hr labor?
Thanks for your help.
One more question. Paying for travel time is not listed in the contract or on the Schedule of fees. They are located about 30 Min away from my house. They are billing an hour of travel time for each time they come. In two cases they were only onsite for 30 min at the most. Do I have to pay for travel time?
Thank you for your follow-up.I have never heard of anyone paying for 'travel time' unless this was an emergency call. If this was in the general course of doing business, their travel time if not disclosed in your contract is NOT your obligation or responsibility. That seems to be a tack-on charge without grounds or justification.Good luck.
