I am curious what the average rate per hour is, across the country, by state or region, for a service truck/electrician to go to a home and do a repair or similar work.

I know that the company I worked for previously that was largely service work oriented, billed $55/hour for a van and 1 man, plus materials. $85 if it was an emergency/night.

Is their any kind of a database anyone knows of where I could locate this kind of info?

M-F 8am-5pm....$72.50/hr plus $35.00 service charge gets you 1 service truck and 1 electrician. Helper is $62.00/hr.

After hours and weekends....$108.75/hr with 4 hour min.

Holidays $145.00/hr 4 hr min.

Ladder/bucket trucks start at $125.00/hr

MONOLITH,
i would be surprised at any available data base being current.(except ENC here)

it is very geographical, as well as situational.

even within my state (Vermont) there exists pockets of higher rates
