    Received two more quotes for $500 and $700. $200 on top of that for permits.

    Quote was to run the wire outside of the walls in a garage with a subpanel.
    Then that quote is fucking Looney Tunes. They didn't want to do it.

    Easy to say the quote is bad when nobody knows any details of the house and how the wire is run. Finished basement?? How far?? Finished garage??
    The job doesn’t get done by someone for just material the guy has to get paid to do it, takes time to collect material then do the job.

    At least there is a lot of electricians not working in town so labour should be cheap.

    I have a finished basement and a finished garage, I was getting quotes of $1500 to run the wire 17 feet.

    I got all the proper equipment myself and ran it for pennies on the dollar.

    I was full of luck though, my electrical room and storage room that was attached to the garage were both unfinished resulting in a wire in the ceiling from one room to another.
    Drill a hole in garage and mount charger right there. I even ran a second wifi hub so the X had her own hub to attached to when parked.

    Sometimes the house works out like that, mine is as well. Mine would be 2-3 hours of work for me to do it.

    He states he is gettinga sub panel so the feed has to come from the main panel in the house, how far and how much is finished if any is unknown. They suggested running a pipe on the drywall to not wreck the walls is safe to assume, the other quotes would probably be cutting the walls up and leaving it for the home owner to get repaired. But who knows? I don’t see a ton of info, just lots of complaining about the price.

    3-4 hours labour on two of the quotes where we fish it up the attic and have a cleaner install. Main panel is actually in the garage where this is connected, sub is in the basement. They don't need to go into the basement. Zero drywall work other than a couple of small holes for the conduits in all quotes.

    I wouldn't say that it is "lots of complaining". It doesn't bother me at all. Will let other companies have the work.

    The $1600 quote actually doubled during after hours because they need to install a thingamabob to make sure we are safe in the new home. Nice folks though and I appreciate their time in coming out to provide a quote.

    Seems simple enough but always a challenge getting into a attic through the top 2x4 with minimal damage. I get why the conduit had been suggested as it’s the easiest and fastest.

    I wasn’t suggested you were complaining, all the guys ranting about the cost without knowing the job was what I was referring too. Good luck, update us with the results.
