TAP and Sons Electric, Inc. posted on 6/18/2012
excessive parts charge
On May 16, 2012, I contacted Tap and Sons Electric, Inc to see if they could help with an electrical problem I had. I explained what was wrong and advised them that I thought it was the main circuit breaker that had broken when I tried to reset it after a vacation I was on. They sent a technician out rather promptly and he indeed concluded that the main circuit breaker was broken. He replaced the circuit breaker : a Murray MPD 2200 200 amp circuit breaker. He completed this repair quickly. He advised me that the part cost was $525.00. I inquired that the cost seemed high and he responded that he thought it was because it was an older model ( my house was built in 1985 as was thousands of others and this was the original breaker ). He had the part readily available on his truck. I am not the professional and I conceded to the repair. Later , I learn that the retail cost for this part runs $85.00 to $100.00 , yet Tap and Sons Electric charged about 5 times that much : a 500% plus markup. There was an additional cost of $125.00 to install the part. . If this would have been a larger job, the excessive parts costs could have been hundreds or thousands of dollars more
