The rates for plumbing cost repairs can be different based on where you live in CA. In Los Angeles you can spend anywhere from $ 50 to $ 300 dollars to snake drain. To make sure you are not ripped off you need to be careful who you hire. Also remember just because something is cheap does not mean it is good. Try and look for at least 3 quotes before a job is done. Do not be afraid to ask for a written estimate before you work done.
Ask For Local Referrals
Before you hire plumbers ask your friends and family for any and all recommendations before hiring. Sometimes word of mouth is best as many reviews online can be fake or from people the plumbers paid off. Other online sources like Yelp and Google and Angie’s list are also good sources.
Consider Small Companies
When you are often looking online and see Google Ads and Yelp Ads business locations please remember that you are paying a premium price for these companies. There ads cost money, for example a yelp ad may cost the business up to 25 dollars per click guess who makes up for that on their back end? You do as the consumer and when you are looking into the Yellow pages those people who have small ads are paying less which means they can afford to charge you less as the consumer.
Request an Estimate
When you call by phone ask for a typical ball park range on what costs should be. If a company can not even give you a general idea of what the cost should be you may need to look elsewhere. Look for a company who focuses on you and beware of companies that always try and up sell the job. Finally those companies that offer to come out for free are likely just trying to get a foot in the door so the real costs can begin.
