I think they should pay *you* a deinstall fee just for suggesting
something like that.

On a slightly related topic, a US-based colo outfit used by a company
I work with wants a fee to disconnect power to the cage.  The tenant
had been there for years and, at contract renewal time, was lobbied
hard ($$) by the colo company to reduce power consumption.

Did they mention a deinstall fee at this time?

The tenant worked for a few months and freed up 20 power circuits.
The colo then said that they had a disconnect fee for each power

Now, I think a reasonable fee is $0.   The colo wants considerably more.
I won't bias you with the figure yet... please let me know what you
think is reasonable, either by experience or just as a thought exercise.

I think a reasonable fee is whatever is set in their contract - which I
suspect is $0.  You can't just tack on fees like this afterwards.
