First, we don't charge this fee up front. The only time we charge you a modest $30 estimate fee is if you do NOT have your unit repaired. If you do decide to get your unit fixed, this fee is waived! If you paid this fee up front - we just take it off at the end.
Some places even offer to ship your unit back for free. Come on. Do you really think that you're not going to be paying for this? Really? If you fall for that, I've got some swamp land here in Florida for a great price... One way or another, they'll get it out of you.
Back in the day I worked for shysters like this. They just mark up the cost of repair and tell you that shipping is free. In this day and age - if you're still falling for that - well, I just can't help you, my friend...
That's fair, isn't it?
'Free' estimates are a gimmick. So is 'free' return shipping.
Tell me, are you really gonna fall for that?
