Quote Price Fan


Hello-
My office space does not have any electrial in the middle of ceiling. I received a quote from a contractor to "install electrial box in the ceiling for customer owned ceiling fan and install the fan" for $300.00.
Is that a fair price? High? Low?
Thanks in advance for your insight.

Prices are really hard to judge especially when the devil is in the details and labor rates can vary widely based on location. That said it seems in the realm of reasonable given that there is no power in the location where the fan is to be installed.

from here we can't really see what the electrician will have to do to get that electrical box installed.

Is a switch going to be installed also somewhere on a nearby wall? Or is the fan going to be turned on/off by the pull chain?
