Computer Flu - Fixed Rates
These are my Rates as from
1 Jan 2020
Most of my work is charged by the hour. I will charge you £40 for the 1st hour, then £30 an hour after the 1st hour. After the 1st hour I will then charge to the nearest 10 minutes. So if a job took me 1 hour and 30 minutes to fix, then I would charge you £40 for the 1st hour, then £15 for the half an hour.
I try to work as fast as your computer / laptop / tablet will let me.
for the 1st hour.
No call out charge.
after the 1st hour.
Rounded to the nearest 10 minutes.
1 hr 20 mins = £40+£10
1 hr 40 mins = £40+£20
2 hrs = £40+£30
This list below shows typically what it's likely to cost for certain jobs. Most customers have a list of things that they want fixed, so I charge my hourly rate above. If you wanted your wireless broadband setup and a new laptop setup, then I would not charge £40 (Wireless broadband setup) and £45 (Laptop setup) =£85, just my hourly rates above. Which typically takes just an hour and a half (£55)
