The Cost Of Deceptive AutoGlass Pricing

what is deceptive pricingGimme Your Best Price!

What’s in the price may be the better question than what is the price.

We understand that money is a major driver in any transaction. The first thought when anyone needs repairs to their car is, Oh man how much is this going to cost me? How much is this going to cost me and the price quoted may not be the same thing. I could get into the differences in quality and service as it relates to value, which is immensely important, but that is not what I want to focus on today.

Examples Of Deceptive Pricing

Have you ever been quoted an amount for some product or service to only find your final bill way beyond what you expected?

Let me give a very common example.

Your car needs new tires.

So you ask, how much are new tires? You get a response of $95 per tire. So you add that up in your head and get $380. Cool, I can afford that!

The next day you get your car back and the BILL!

  • Tires $95/tire $380
  • Mounting $20/tire $80
  • Balancing $25/tire $100
  • Valve stems $8/tire $32
  • Disposal fee $4/tire $16
  • Total $608
  • Tax $36.48
  • FINAL BILL $644.48

What happened here? You got what you asked for, sort of! Price made the sale. Sure the tires cost $95 each but you were not told the whole story, and now you’re stuck paying a bill you were not prepared for! Not knowing the WHOLE story can leave you feeling deceived.

It appears that many industries use the practice of hidden costs or deceptive pricing in order to get the sale. In the video below, it discusses the hidden or deceptive costs of buying cheaper airfare tickets. It clearly mentions that, in the end, you end up paying more and get  a lower quality experience.

Let me give you another very common instance of the same scenario.

Question, Can you give me the price of a windshield for my 2000 Dodge Neon?

Answer, That would be $195.

Wow, I can afford that!

You schedule the repair at your home and when the job is done you get your BILL!

  • Windshield $195.00
  • Top molding $23.35
  • Adhesive $25.00
  • Mobile Fee $40.00
  • Disposal Fee $25.00
  • Labor $80.00
  • Total $388.35
  • Tax $23.30
  • Payment due $358.65

You may encounter some or all of these tack on fees with other price quotes! Deceptive pricing won the job!

It is obvious that getting hung up on a number can actually work against you. It is always best to ask what is included with the cost and to make sure that the number that you are getting doesn’t come with associated costs.
