BUT, by charging $400/500 for an item that is actually worth only $20-100 plus few hr of labour is call chop carrot!

- if the plumber got issues you a invoice,then is you pay to their company / boss ,not them,they just a worker..one foreign worker work permit + worker insurance cost average $50-60+ per day..one worker salary per day $70+... material cost $20-100..one van/service car rental per day $40+...petrol $5-$10..one company account admin salary + CPF/permit cost per day $80+...(if they cant settle the problem for you,they still need to follow up the cases and some more give you the warranty period)..their company profit only $150+(not include government tax).for my personal opinion this price is quite reasonable..not a chop carrot.
