$73+GST an hour for my working time, plus materials & consumables at cost prices.
A quote/invoice will be calculated on this hourly rate, plus whatever direct costs are incurred for your tasks as agreed.
If I finish things quicker than expected, your invoice will be billed for less than your initial quote.
Sometimes for example, when lifting floorboards a greater issue is uncovered which may take longer, or you may add other tasks to my work mid-way through a project I’m on. These additions will be explained before any variations are made to the quote/billing though, where applicable.
If you have a particular budget to stick to for your project, I’ll see if it’s feasible, with potentially simplified options as appropriate.
I always try to bring as many materials with me as I can in advance, so I shouldn’t need to go shopping in the middle of the day.
Please also note that my working time starts from when I arrive, to when I drive away : so this is the time I can’t be working for anyone else. Please respect this in helping me keep my time on location as efficient as we can make it, particularly giving me clear access to load and unload my tools and any materials I may need to bring in to work with, and providing me a suitable/clear location in which to work.
