Keep in mind he traveled to and from in a truck burned fuel he has to pay for . At some time he went and bought the parts in the truck and should be able to put some markup on stock.
It's like that with any trade really computers, cars, ect. Your really paying so much for the licensed part of it and now in NY they past the law now you need a inspection permits to change toilet out "really?"
If you need to come out to solder a coupling on a pipe that broke I can't imagine charging hundreds of dollars.
It's the fact that they can charge out the nose because they are licensed and certified.
The big plumbing companies are even worse then the small ones.
