Resue Rooter Gardena CA / Bait and Switch, Deceptive and Hostage Pricing techniques

1 15707 South Main StreetGardena, CA, United States Review updated:

After the plumber completed the $288.50 cable job, he said he needed an additional cable and another machine, for an additional $250. When she protested, he told her that she had already approved it in the original estimate, and then he proceeded to lift off the paper that was hiding the extra cable notation and showed her that she already approved it.

After he completed the second cable job, he then told her that he needed an additional $175 (reduced to $75 when she protested) to snake out the shower, for a total rip-off bill of $613.50.

This Rescue Rooter Company in Gardena CA intentionally deceived, bait and switched, imposed hostage pricing, and ripped-off my fiancee with their excessive and criminal billing.

There are no doubt, more victims, to this scam with this company. Complain to the State License Board:

    i know rescue rooter and that was not the case you probably wasn't there so you dont understand the value or understand how drain cleaning works from nation wide company. yes you could have got it done cheaper and you could have got it done for more. this company does not hide its prices from anybody i know for a fact. and i dont work for them. i work for Benjamin Franklin Plumbing another nation wide company.
