1 hour of labor plus mileage, time starts when my foot leaves my front porch & ends when it hits it on the way back.

Do you have a shortage of electricians or do most shops not do service calls? Be tough to get that kind of $$$ here in WV.


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

$75.00 up to 1 hour $65.00 per hour after. One man. I also use the attitude and stupidity scale. Little old lady couldnt change a lightbulb may get a $50.00 charge. Know it all yuppie guy who is advising me what to check for and "this should be pretty easy" gets the $100.00 charge.

1 hr. minimum, includes drive time to job.
Last one of the day gets the drive home charge. (Most are within 1/2 hr of each other). $65 per hr.
(I often work through lunch and not charge the customer if they're good attitude, or like you say an aged person that might have called another contractor, and get hosed).
Gives me ideas for another thread.

I've reset GFCI's for little old ladies at no charge...

I've claimed to have a $50 minimum, but have never stuck to it.

Things are changing now as my demand grows out of control, and I fear I'm burning some bridges with some loyal customers in the process.

I'm really gambling that the Greenbrier jobs pan out... And six days a week isn't enough to keep up as it is...
