Public Negotiation

PeopleClaim public mediations with co-plaintiffs are similar to class actions except they're resolved with the help of our community of conflict resolution professionals.

Public mediations with co-plaintiffs may be resolved globally — one offer to all parties — or individually via party-to-party negotiation with each separate claim.

While the goal is to help you find the shortest distance between a problem and its resolution, unresolved public mediations may be referred for formal legal represenatation and class action.

meter base

I called for meter base & 30ft service wire to be replaced. So they done $400.00 labor & material at a cost of $1732.30 30 Then they tell me they gave me the opportunity to get another estimate. they did after I called & complained. I signed & pd the bill then posted a negative review
they said it should be removed ,but I did not remove it so they said they were going to contact an attorney

LYLE DEWITT terrible bad experience the meter base was replaced & 30ft new wire at a cost of $1732.30.way unreasonable for a $400.00 job. DON`T CALL THESE PEOPLE UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET RIPPED OFF.

Business Response: Mr. Dewitt, We apologize that you are less than satisfied. That is never our intention. However, we have spoken with you three times about this situation, and we don't feel a negative review is warranted, and it should be removed. We provided our pricing in writing, up front, before any work was started. You mentioned that it was a little higher than you anticipated, but you were in a hurry to have it done and said that you didn't have time to get the other quotes that we encouraged you to obtain. We performed quality work in a timely manner which you agreed to when we came out to quote the job. If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to call me at 740-366-0707. Thank you, Kelly Ault.
L D `S answer. This is irrelevant, this is a way to rip me off. . I would not recommend them for any thing.

. I think a bid, a contract and an estimate are all a little bit of a gray area...I do not think many business owners know the difference or they change their definition in their heads to justify the extra's they want to charge. can I be sued if I post this on peopleclaim.?

1. they did not provide an up front price in writing.
2. nothing was said about getting another quote until after the work was done and I called
the office.. and every time I called I got the same answer.
3. I do not understand what an option 3 is, and no one explained to me what it is. but it is on my invoice
. I did not choose this so someone must have chosen it for me.
4. the rest is irrelevant to the price quoted.
5. I would like to know how you stay in business, and how do you choose who you are going to rip off next?.
. 6. . it is ridiculous to charge $1237.32 for 3 hours labor and approx $200.00 material
that he had to go get because it was not on the truck. =$500.00 per hour.

    Plaintiff should call three competitors and get rough estimates for how much this work should cost. If cost is comparable, then negative review is unwarranted and should be removed. If cost is excessive and Plaintiff was taken advantage of, Plaintiff should approach Respondent with Solution - for a small refund $100 - $500, I can edit the post to only discuss the price is high. If Business price is high and they are not willing to even be reasonable, then the review is probably warranted, as that shows the Business is being unreasonable.

    However, Businesses can charge more, that is why I don't 100% agree with a refund over $500.
