How much do you charge by the hour?
- Date: August 5, 2016
We charge by the job, not by the hour for several reasons. 1. Most customers want to know what it will cost before we start. You can’t do that when you are working on a time and materials basis. 2. Options are almost always available to the customer. We can only quote options and the prices of those options if we are quoting by the job. 3. When you charge by the job, every customer pays the same price for the same job. It isn’t fair that the customer should pay more money for a job because of the differences between one technician and another (no two people are the same). 4. What does an hourly rate really mean anyway? If your technician doesn’t have all the tools or training and it takes him twice as long to perform a repair as it does for a professional then you can end up paying more.
