When you need repairs, Sterling Refrigeration offers bids based on time and materials. There are pros and cons between flat rate pricing and time and material pricing, but time and material pricing allows for a more fairly priced job. You should be dealing with a vendor you trust, of course, but a flat rate price has to price for unexpected problems or equipment issues. The job cannot truly be accurately priced. With time and material pricing, we agree to the basic job to be done, and if any unexpected issues turn up we can then present accurate cost options to you. Time and material bidding can also give you details on how the job is done correctly, since the time billing required to complete the job will list the tasks performed.
