Girl's question has me wondering--- Where do you live, and what's the going range for some of the following: 1) 200 Amp residentail upgrade. SE Cable(25'), 20-30 existing ckts, surface mt. 2) Same as above, except flush mount in drywall with average cutting/patching. 3)Ceiling fan with attic access, and fed from switchbox with 14-3. 4) Same as above with no access above (cutting & drilling required) 5)Minimum billing rate-first hour, each additional hour. 6)Name your own job $ price range.
1)$800 2)$950 3)$50 to $75 4)$75 to $100 5)$50 minimum (I rarely stick to it though, they can usually find a few hours work to do "for free" when I explain it to them...), $22 per hour (usually $20 for old customers)
6)New Residential (framed) less fixtures... $2 to $2.50 per Sq Ft, $4 per amp for service. (About $5K for a 2000 Sq Ft house)
Awesome question.... Wish I had input from some local guys about the going rates...

I live in a Phila. suburb-- 1) $1000 2) $1200 3) $125 4) $150 + 5) $75/45. Or lower (based on attitude).I wouldn't charge $75.00 just to change a switch or receptacle. 6) Off-peak(time-of use)metering system-- $400-600

We only do ind/comm work, so about all I can relate to is: 5) $50 hr. 1 hr. minimum, drive time paid to job. Drive time paid back to shop for last job of the day.
(Manure between the toes? I've got a pic of me surfing down the side of a 30' tall pile when we scraped out the 3 acre horse corral. Lots of fun 'til I "ate it". Then I had to brush my teeth for hours before the taste went away)
