Ditto here, except that it is $4.95 at Home Depot. Your price is in Canadian dollars, yes?
My business advisors and I decided to draw the line using the difference between a generalist and a specialist. We decided to be generalists, so our inspections are visual, and any testing is done using manufacturer’s operating controls and standard tools that a normal homeowner could reasonably be expected to have on hand, such as a ladder, a flashlight, a cheap electrical tester, a screwdriver, a digital camera, etc.
Or come up with choices for one’s Clients: I have nine different inspections (LIST, WALK, BASIC, STANDARD, PREMIUM, TECH, DRIVEBY, FLYBY, CARRY) to offer my Clients. I have more expensive tools that I use for the PREMIUM and TECH inspections. On the other side of the fence, my WALK, DRIVEBY, and FLYBY inspections use no tools whatsoever, no screwdrivers, no flashlights, no ladders, nothing.
