Presently our minimum rate is $195.00 for the first hour excluding travel time. Any items repaired after the first hour will be billed per item. Weekends and after hours incur an additional charge of 25%. Experience has taught us that by billing by the item, our clients will know exactly the repair cost per item. During the normal course of a job, we would incur interruptions by a simple accident, an extended phone call or because of fatigue and would be forced to break for rest. Because of these interruptions, we found it much easier to invoice by the item than to try to keep time for various items.
