In Nebraska, do you have to pay for a job estimate on improving a house is nothing was mentioned upfront? I'm from North Carolina, and I have lived here in Gresham, Nebraska, for only a year and a half. The closest family I have is 812 miles away in Hermitage, Tennessee. I do have friends here in Nebraska within a 100 mile surrounding area. His "foreman;" I guess is his title; since as far as I know it's only the two the two of them, one is also a neighbor several houses down from me here, greeted me first thing this Saturday morning, 8:15 AM CST, September, 14th, 2013, at the Farmers Co-Op Store just two blocks away from my home, and had the audacity to say I have to pay for his bosses time and travel pay going to Menard's in Columbus, Nebraska to find out prices on the needed supplies. No amount was given as of today, but to honest it sounds like a scam. I got very angry first thing this AM when I was told this from my neighbor; my fairly new friend I thought; that works for this boss (I do not know his bosses name, because he keeps referring to him as his boss, but I don't forget faces and body builds. I was a trained observer for 13 1/2 years.), and what I was told is well, "Bryan, he has time invested in going to Columbus to get prices on the supplies, and for coming by your house first thing in the morning on the way to a job." I told him immediately that I was not ever told about having to pay for an estimate, and I have not ever heard of any such thing having to pay for a estimate. He saw how angry I was in my eyes and facial expression, and he immediately jumped into his truck and sped away. I have had several contractors come by my home and none, repeat, none of them have ever mentioned about being charged, or have even tried to charge me for their estimates for the home improvements and/or for home repair costs. So what are my legal rights when these guys confront me again; other than the fact as of right now; I am flat out refusing to pay them for their estimate; especially when nothing was ever mentioned upfront about it.
