and I thought you had to watch your back when you brought your boat to a marina to get fixed, I think boats are cheaper than dishwashers. well not really but atleast the boat helps me get laid.

I Don't think you will get anywhere starting out by jumping on them. Start out nice inquiring about the higher than expected bill.If ya cant reason with them on why the bill is on the high side then start to chew some ass. if ya know your not going to get anywhere with them let them have it.

Oh Yea the first thing when you go to the office take a 5 gallon can of gas and set it on the counter .Take the top of to get ready to pour. Then ask your questions about the bill

My brother and I own apts and we ALWAYS handle the repairs personally!
$159 for a dishwasher repair is only about $30 away from a brand new dishwasher.
Don't get depressed, we have been hosed BIG TIME so many times it still hurts when I sit down!!!
We live and we learn..........each and every day!!!

You would not even get the key in my truck for 150 bucks.

First there is the portal to portal charge that they are hitting you with
Then there is the hourly charge with probably a 1-1.5 hour minimum.
Then there is the part charge
Probably a fuel surcharge

Sounds about right to me. Mabye a couple buck one way or the other but not much.
