$100/hr for skilled trade work $75/hr for small handyman type work $50/hr for unskilled labor jobs If the job is an impromptu emergency, or a service call out of the way I will charge a trip fee in addition to the hourly rate I have to add an overhead charge to materials I supply in order to cover the time and effort spent to source and stock the correct components Large quoted jobs are negotiable and offered as a lump sum price for a proposed scope. Estimates, Bids, Invoices, and Receipts are available in writing for your records
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When I connect with a customer through Thumbtack I will send a message through the app and ask to have a quick text or phone call to make our introduction. If we can work out a solution to the customer’s need right away, we can proceed to make arrangements to get the job done. If it looks like we need some more time or information I’ll work with the customer to visit the job site or figure out the next steps. Sometimes it becomes clear we may not be a good fit and I’ll do my best to help guide the customer to a better solution. However it works, I’m here to help.
