Is anyone really going to pay that installation charge for someone to come to the house and plug this into the wall outlet? LOL

I put it in my cart and the "Expert Installation" fee was still showing as $1,291.29. crazy There are a number of products like this on Amazon with a similar insane "Expert Installation" charge.

We laugh but imagine if you were the business partnering with Amazon for that. I'd gladly accept $120 to install a new toilet seat that someone bought off Amazon.

Amazon probably has an incentive for sellers to offer installation and this seller doesn't really want to offer it, or they can adjust pricing based on mileage and you're far from the seller.

LOL ... I was just going to post that the $1200+ must be to cover coast to coast airfare.

They probably quote that in case someone accepts. It's good money if you can find the work (even once).

Reminds me of "let us install it" labels on certain software.

Let Geek Squad help you install your video game disc into your game console:

All youz guys are missing something.

If, "Are you sure the unit is plugged in sir (or mamme)?" is a legit question then offering a plug in or game insertion service makes perfect sense.

Hey, if the installer breaks it, it's on their dime.
