Yes, it is foot in the door scam. I was reading the fine print on $49.99 had picture of bigger machines use $400.00 and jetting. It is a scam.

Thanks to this forum I was able to find out the gimmick. In the short run they make us look like over priced rip off. But the truth is we don't hide our prices or use scumbag sales tactics.

Drain Cleaning

We have some companies around here doing a similar thing. Im almost positive that before the service is over the customer is shocked by the end bill.

Or it could be that it is a get in the door gimmick. Once the technician is there they can work there magic on up charges and add-ons.

While these techniques unfortunately do work to get customers it wont result in happy customers. We have a major competitor in our area who does similar to this and every past customer of there's is a repeat customer of mine.

Don't try to compete with these people. Ive gotten to the point to where i all but ignore some of these guys in my area. I used to try to compete on pricing and everything else, but this just reduced my bottom line.

The worst part about these sale practices is it ruins the plumbing trade even more. Customers hate us as it is. Stuff like this does not help.

Either they are bait and switching which will hurt their business OR they are way under pricing in which case they will hurt their business.
