I have a vacation home in Delray Beach and a service contract with Vans One Hour Air Conditioning. I recently needed a service call and my elderly mother in law helped me out by letting them in the house. They fixed two parts and charged me $548 for parts that cost $40. Then they shook my mother in law down for the cash or check to pay for it instead of billing me.
This company took advantage of an out of town owner and an elderly person all at once. $548 later, when I confronted The company about this outrageous price, they did nothing about it. 
Buyer beware. Ripping off the elderly, dispicable!

 And lets convenently FORGET the service call AND the SKILLED labor that is charged at a per hour rate. What gets a bill this high is that much like a auto shop doing repairs, there is a SET TIME perscribed for any job. This means that even if they finish early the are going to charge the HOURLY rate that the specific parts are allowed by law. And it is NOT illegal for them to ask for money AFTER the job is completed. They DO NOT have to bill you, but you DO have to pay. The price of the parts is only part of the bill and just because you found a SIMILAR part online doesnt make it what THEY paid for a part. Maybe YOU should go to school for AC repair, it would give you a extra skill and then you would get to see what they have to deal with. If you think it either too hot or too cold IN the house, you should try being that poor workman on the roof. Much hotter or colder up there, normally exposed to the elements and having to do presicion work on AC unit. Yeah, I wouldnt WANT their job.

And she wasnt "Shaken down". They just wanted their payment then and did not want to wait for YOU to descide when YOU were going to pay. Maybe you should take into account that YOU ARE NOT THERE!!! Which means that they wont get paid untill YOU descide to do so. It was WELL within their rights as a business to ask for payment after the job was completed.

Sounds to me that you just want something to b**** about more then anything.
