Our standard labor rate is $48/hr.
When we diagnose a unit with a repair cost that we consider to be greater than half of the cost to replace the unit, we will contact the client's technician for authorization. If the repair is authorized, then repair billing will be normal. However, if the client declines the repair, then the client will be billed a standard bench fee of $25 to cover the cost of the diagnoses of the unit.
Remember our labor is BOCES aid-able, but the cost of parts are not. There are no surcharges on parts, they are billed at our cost.
