    Default $5800.00 to replace the well pump and wiring

    So now what do I do to get the bill reduced, when the verbal quote was 2-$3,000?

    Maybe nothing, unless your city/county/state contractor's regulatory board has a requirement that any work over a certain maximum must have a written contract.

    You first should start by asking where the extra $2800-3800 came from? Did this verbal agreement include a cap? Sounds like not.

    You start by not paying.

    Move this to the well forum and ask what it should cost with all the parameters included.

    I'd have done it for $ 5,798.00

    quote; ask what it should cost with all the parameters included.

    One of the easiest jobs is to say how much it SHOULD have cost AFTER the job is done. I always tell customers who ask it that there is NO WAY I can tell them, because I was not there when it was done to see what difficulties they ran into.

    I would definitely inquire about where the extra bill came from.
