Blog TipsWhats the difference between upfront pricing and time& materials?

Since I give my clients a free estimate I can give them an upfront price before I do the work, but my price is based on time and material/Hourly Rate.  This “hybrid” pricing works great for the professional plumber (ME) who inspects what work is to be done, tells the client what to expect, and quotes a fair price based on individual jobs.  I think this is the fairest way to charge a client.

There is a great article by Licensed Plumber, Evan Conklin, explaining the major differences and pros/cons between the two pricing choices. Read his article here.
