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

i would be surprised at any available data base being current.(except ENC here) [Linked Image]

it is very geographical, as well as situational.

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