So like I've mentioned in previous post we also run a small engine repair shop. We are really starting to grow and have a great reputation for quality work and the fastest tunr around in town. Our problem lately is that people come to the shop at all hours (9-10 pm) at night and show up on holidays. Do any of you guys actually do this? The worst part is most of the time it's some fly by nite lawn company and there mtd crapped out and they have to have it for tomorrow . So IF I tell them I'll do it I'll say it's double my normal rate of $40 an hour (so $80) for me working after hours and they usually act like I a crook! These people don't ever spend a dime with me and then when there in between a rock and a hard spot I'm suppose to bail them out. Good luck. Also, when your dealer calls and tells you your machine (that you said you had to have back quickly) is ready, how long does it take you to go pick it up? These PITA will leave there crap here for a month even after several calls. They usually don't come to get it until I threaten to sell it for the cost of the repair.
