5 mile drive. Disconnect a hard-wired range. Install floor mount receptacle. No need to install the cord on the new range. No problems encountered.
Fill in the blanks please.

Is the new floor outlet fed from the line that fed the hard-wired range, or do you have to run a new line to the panel?

Would you believe $225.00?
That is what a customer of mine paid someone else. He said the guy was there about 20 min. I'm sure it took a little longer than that though. He couldn't get ahold of me in time for his range delivery, but when I got back to him he asked me what I thought it would cost. I told him about $110.00-125.00.

(NJ)Using the existing cable.

$85-$100, depending if it was a 3-wire recpt or 4-wire recpt I had to install. (New or existing appliance?)

Boy! That's where I'm out of touch with residential work. Here in Houston most companies will charge a minimum of 2 hours, and at a rate of $50.00 to $75.00 per hour.
Plus material.
