The panel is in the backyard and the spot is toward the front of the house, but having been up in the attic (no basement) numerous times, it's not a huge
P-I-A. But this company touted itself by it's flat rate prices for the job, not hourly (which I would think it standard), and their rate sheet was just simply what it was, with no reference to *** pain.
The annoying thing is that when I called to take advantage of their $15 estimate sale (rather than $59), I asked if they could ballpark what such a thing might run. She said they have to see it first. But when creepy guy just plopped the rate sheet in front of me and said "it's this or this," and no "having to see" to come up with a price, I don't understand why she didn't just fax it to me. I would have known that even without a new circuit I wasn't interested in paying that. (Plus, the day before my water heater blew up, so the optional upgrades weren't going to happen for a while anyway since the dishwasher repair guy was also coming that day, too. My house fell apart.)
The guy badly disguised that he felt his time was wasted. It wasn't me who did that! I gave him the fifteen bucks and sent him on his way.
