My guess is when company's add a trip charge of $95 and $75 per hour for labor plus parts, yeah I would say It all adds up pretty quick.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
