I also paid the sucker fee to find that it costs $2,124.07 to purchase the unit, bolt it to the wall and twist on three wire nuts.chipcustomizer wrote:Hi All,
I need some help, perhaps one of you can let me know what's going on here. I got my garage pre-wired with a 240 non-fusable switch wired to my panel with a 40 Amp breaker. My electrician charged me about $300.
The AV guy came out, did the assessment for 5 min and charged $100. Said he was going to recommend a minimum install with a 15' cable on the EVSE. Just today I got the quote and here was the breakdown:
Install - $800
EVSE - $721
Shipping - $50
I called up and thought $800 for the install was ridiculous since all they have to do is plug the thing into the switch I already have installed. I told them I'd rather just buy the EVSE and do it myself. They changed the form online so I had the option. I accepted all the terms and now they want to charge me $995 for the EVSE!
I really really hate doing business with companies that do that sort of thing. They will charge me $721 for the EVSE if they do the job but if I just want the EVSE they are going to charge me over $250 more?! Where is the sense in that.
Anyone have any advice? I feel like AVs got me in a corner. Please help.
My home is fully prewired and inspected for EV as part of the city building code.
I will not give AV another penny. Leviton 160 will be in my garage as soon as it is available.
