just did labor only replacement rear door regulator.
customer came in to replace a regulator w/motor. he buy aftermarket part online, so install the part. notice makeing lot of noise going up. so the customer want me to put back the old one. i said ok. so i didn't charge anything. you think i should still charge for my time.
We charge $45.00 just to take a door panel off and take a look. Once it's off and diagnosed if the owner will 99% of the time approve the parts and labor. You gotta remember like most of us know, the few bucks made on labor jobs like this takes time away from profitable jobs. Oh, that's right it's so slow free is the going rate.
AG I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU! when it's slow you don't charge less,,,, duh ,,that is a formula for going broke. Charge for what you are worth man! If your time is worth 0 than go for it,,, work for free, but you should at least get beer money!!!!!
Can you share alittle more on how you are doing this?On cash customers, do you give them an in shop price and then tell them its $15.00 more for mobile?
On insurance(with the networks) do you wait until they have dropped off the line and then when you set the appointment up, you tell them it will be $xxx for mobile service and use a separate invoice for that?
