I'm just gonna explain my post above.
I have to believe that they are not taking advantage of you, benefit
of the doubt so to speak, because I too am running a shop and would
hate to lose a customer simply because someone said to get a second
What if the actual work IS warranted/needed?
Yes, second opinion is all good and fine. But what if the next
shop takes advantage of her?
I believe that finding a shop via word of mouth & then getting a
new estimate, is a better way to go (and a better non-expert answer).
That way she will be able to stick with the new shop in the future
with no worries about costs being out of line.
