The PrePaid Maintenance Plan Fallacy

In the spring of 2012 we were called to a home to provide a second opinion.  The system was 12 years old and they were in the final year of a 4 year prepaid maintenance contract.  The home owner said the competitors’ tech showed up, took a look at the system label on the side of the unit, and declared it was shot,  “Need a new unit and there is nothing we can do to fix this one.”  When we arrived, the system was cooling, but intermittently.  The reason was the outdoor fan motor was not operating properly and needed to be replaced.

Oh, and the bigger guys started adding all kinds of things to the estimate to “void” the beat any price guarantee.
