Job Rates

I have produced a Job Price Estimate Guide (below).

The reason for it being an estimate only is because in common with many other professions it is not always possible to fully assess a job work time for various reasons.

If you inform me of any cost limitations you wish to apply to the job before commencement I will be happy to discuss these before work begins.

Device Fault Identification and Reporting

To identify a fault (or faults) on a device I will make a flat rate charge of £20 per device investigated in one session. This would apply also to a network to which multiple devices were attached and experiencing a single fault condition, (only one charge is made).

Should separate systems have issues without a common cause (with regard to the symptoms) then a subsequent additional charge(s) of £15 each device may be made at my discretion if identified during the same visit.


Long Scans or System Testing

Time will be charged only to disassemble, scan set up and reassemble / restore a system to its original state before work commenced.

So time is not charged for the duration of longer term tasks such as diagnostic scanning (repair scans, or Anti Virus / Malware scans) or similar longer tasks.

Time will be charged however for remedial works based on the outcomes discovered or associated investigative work relevant to the reported issue(s) of the machine or system.

Where possible I will coincide scans with other work as required to minimise work time or disruption and speed up the overall jobs completion. Where this occurs my normal hourly/half day or full day rates will apply.


Travel Costs (if applicable)

Time is not charged for travelling to your premises if local to Stroud, but if subsequent visits are required or if I need to purchase components relevant to your repair to complete the work(s), I will charge 50p per mile and £10 per hour for my time.
