Repair rate increase

Postby Bill DeShivs » Mon Aug 15, 2016 9:51 pm

Old Bill has tried not to raise prices for about 8-10 years.
Unfortunately, I have had to raise my hourly repair rate to $70.
This increase is to cover the ever-increasing materials cost, utility rates, and other expenses incurred in my shop.
I have also increased pricing on some of my flat-rate services- like my shell puller conversions.

As most of you know, I absorb material costs into my hourly rate, with the exception of unusually expensive materials like stag, precious metals, or other expensive materials.

Thank God it is only a "repair" rate increase because I want custom work done. :lol:
