Recognize that there are several variables in developing the price. These include: 

  • Time that it takes to complete the project.
  • How many technicians are working on your project.
  • Was it an after hours emergency
  • With many more aspects that may add to the cost

Remember, the company quoting a low rate may not necessarily be the right  company for you. Some  companies may offer low hourly rates, but then charge additional "fees" to complete the job.
