One thing we pride ourselves on at Mr. Rooter Plumbing is how we determine costs for jobs. Did you know that unlike many competitors, we have a Pricing Guide that dictates costs for each job?
Drain Doctor, our counter-part in the UK, recently did a blog on a scam recently covered in the Yorkshire Post - in which an "unscrupulous plumber preyed on the elderly by carrying out unnecessary or pointless repairs to their drains". This reinforces why we have our pricing set up as we do - to ensure the consumers are protected by just such a situation.
That's why we are maintaining our fixed prices. No overtime is charged for evening, weekend or holiday emergencies and every job is priced before work starts, laid out in our pricing guide.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing provides a 24 hour a day, 365 days a year service in every part of the country with each franchise run as an independent business. We strive to provide exemplary levels of service in a market often overrun with operators who are overcharging customers for simple plumbing fixes.
