  4. Plumber quotes 100-150€ to change tap, Rechnung is 263,92€

    Hi, Bit weird that you timed them! When I used to do house calls I would have added money to the bill because you were standing there timing me  HOWEVER I would not have ripped you off, which is what they seemed to have done. They definitely added VAT to the hours which would have brought the total up, and you have no idea what they had to do to get the tap off. In an older bathroom it really isn't always a straighforward job, try getting a plumber under 50 in the UK to change bath taps on a cast iron bath. You are paying for their experience and their know-how if something goes wrong. You are not just paying them to swop out a tap. But it was still excessive.   - If they said they were there to fix the tap then DONT pay the 22 for swopping the hot tap back to the left (that was not in the original auftrag). If your bathroom is old and needs renovation, 85 seems excessive for a tap (maybe you live in the Adlon?), you could question that too. Registered plumbers here buy material for half-nothing in special stores (that we mortals can't enter).   Was it a Meister? If so report the case to their innung or the relevant authority, put them in cc. They probably won't do anything about it and if they do they won't tell you (data protection) but the scammers in cc will get royally peeved and might listen to you about the bill.    But, you did sign it, I preusme that means you nullified the verbal agreement (I don't know if that has any standing here, I am not a lawyer)   Pay them 1.5 hours, the tap, call out charge and not a cent more.   D
