Plumbing Professionals whats a good price?

Hey guys I do a lot around the house but need a professional for my kitchen. Granite guys are installing the sink itself this weekend. So I need a plumber to hook up the piping to the sink which includes the faucet, a disposal that i already have installed, and my dishwasher. I got a quote for $375, seems a bit high. Whats reasonable?

Reasonable is a quality job, done promptly and correctly that doesn't require any call backs. Unfortunately, what's reasonable in your area may not be in mine.

What is he providing? Will the faucet be installed or will he have to bend and contort in a cabinet and work around the bowls of the sink?

Is the faucet a counter mount or sink mount? If sink mount, it should probably be installed while the sink is out. Matter of fact, same for counter mount I'd think. Much easier access.

If the faucet is in place, the rest shouldn't take more than an hour or so.

Are you kidding me. For 3 items, two requiring both incoming and exiting water. $375 sounds like a bargain to me.

Okay to be more specific. The granite installers install the actual sink itself into the cabinet and create a hole in the granite for the faucet to be placed in. The sink is a 32" Undermount single drain. The drain pipe is existing along with the hot and cold water line. They must install

1) the piping to connect the sink and faucet to the drain pipe and water lines.
2) 3/4 hp disposal.
3) Connect the dishwasher.

$375 is a good price? I live in south florida.

If its a deep sink I bet the drain in the wall may be lower then the sink drain... You will have issues and need to go into the wall to fix..

Yes $375 is a good price for that... Here in NJ anyway...

What do you mean the drain in the wall lower than the sink drain? Do you mean you bet the disposal drain will be lower than the wall drain? My cabinets are in and going into the wall will bust the back of the cabinet. I had a 9" double basin undermount with this same disposal prior to the cabinets being moved and had no issues.

sometimes homeowners put deeped sinks in and then with undermount the GD drain is lower then the wall outlet.

Just saying is all....
