I've never even heard of someone daring to charge just to do an estimate, and in this economy not likly to start hearing about it.
A microwave needs it's own 20 circut using 12-2 wire.

Their whole promotion was that the person who came out could do the work immediately, and the fee would be applied. I think that was why he was so dismayed that I said no. I'm sure people paying the whole $59 and not being very bright figure "what the heck" and go with it. With there little sale, $15 is a small price to pay (to me) to know who NOT to have do the work.

With the panel being on the outside wall this job would probably fall into the more difficult(expensive) range. How to access the panel for new cables is going to be an issue. Walls will need to be cut open most likely.
