Why we may be late

Abolish leaves a two hour window of service. After each job the technician may finish earlier or later than expected. When dealing with bees, birds, or any other animals you never know what surprises they may leave behind. For the most part, our technicians arrive within their two hour window. If they are running past their two hour window, please consider what the technician may have encountered.

Apart from jobs, there are other situations that are out of our hands. For instance, Traffic is at times unpredictable and when it is bad it is bad. Car accidents can badly congest the freeways and it may take an hour of traffic to get to the job site. Here is an example of a true story.


"2pm appointment is set, the job is only 30 minutes away. Nothing else is interfering with the schedule, So You leave at 1:15 to get to the job that should be only 30 minutes away. Well on the way there 5 min before you get to travel down the freeway there is a traffic accident Freeway is closed, you're in a bad reception area. Here are the pictures to give you an example of a this situation. The office has no idea what has happened, the customer has no idea and the technician has no reception, just an average day at work."

Here is another real situation:
We get a call that a rat is in the house. We show up and estimate that it will take us an hour or 2 hours to get the rat out of the house. The kids are scared, they won't leave their bedrooms, the wife is running around and the husband is at work. Once we arrive the rat decides to run from one room to another room. We solved that room now the rat decided to run underneath the dish washer. Then, after we take out the dish washer, disassembled it to get the rat. We encounter another rat that is running around. Our 2 hour window that we allowed our technician for has run into the 3 hour mark. Now there is a live rat running around in the house, are we supposed to say sorry we have to leave because we have another appointment to get to within their 2 hour window or should the customer understand that the estimate has gone over time and we always get the job done.

How much does it cost for an inspection?
Inspections vary depending on the type of service needed.

Is the inspection fee refundable if I do not like the proposal price?
No. The inspection fee is the cost for us to come out and do an inspection.

How long does it take to receive a proposal after an inspection?
A proposal may take between 3-7 days to receive. Sometimes a proposal may be received sooner. There are small jobs where a proposal is not needed. There are rare cases where we need to get prices on materials from vendors a proposal may take a few extra days, however, the technician will keep you updated if this happens.

What's the difference between an inspection fee and estimate?
Inspection fee is cost to inspect the job and figure what needs to be done, estimate is written or verbal estimate to see how much the job MAY cost.

If I do not receive a proposal do I get my inspection fee back?
If a proposal is not received (for a job the required a proposal) within 3-7 days from the inspection date the customer is responsible to call the office and advise that they have not received the proposal yet. It is possible that sometimes an email address or fax number was inputted or received incorrectly, or the technician has just been very busy. The technician will then double check that a proposal was sent out if not, the technician will immediately send out the proposal
