I know there are several people/groups in here that do work for others ‘at a cost’. I’m currently in that market myself (though a step or three beyond a joystick) and have been trying to figure out how to charge for the labor involved. What kind of mark-up do you put on labor? Or hopw do you figure out how much to charge? To put some numbers on it, the raw materials for the current job will cost around $300, and the labor itself will only take a couple days worth of work, but the research and back log of info for it has taken ‘years’ to collect. I’m currently going in somewhere between $400 and $450. The guy was willing to pay when the price was $700, but I’ve been trying to work it down and got it this low and want to pass the savings on to the customer (hey its a friend, I don’t want to rip him off). so does anyone have any advice?
