For those who missed the expose on an electrical contractor on Carte Blanche last night, here's the transcript.
Clearly the guy's pricing is "heavy handed" to put it mildly, but did the story really do the issues justice? Personally, I don't think so.
First off, it seems the guy isn't even an electrical contractor! According to the ECA neither the company or the "electrician" are registered with the ECB! Chris Greager says they can be prosecuted.
But will they be prosecuted?
The second thing that itched a bit was Chris's ideas on markups. Seriously, he's recommending no more than a 20% markup on materials!
We're a service industry, not Tony Factor style discount chainstores.
What do you think is a fair mark-up on materials?
