    charge however much you need to, to make the hourly rate you wanna make. very simple. you want us to come up there and hold your hand on every estimate? live and learn buddy. not trying to come off as a prick but this thread is rediculous.

    Not trying to be an a$$. Think about the question you just asked and how many answers to that question there could be. With the little information you provided how is anyone supposed to answer that? What is it costing you to provide the service? Only you can answer that question. Think about what it is costing you in every aspect of your business. Break everything down. Your total cost for everything. Add some reasonable profit, equipment replacement and brother you have your hourly rate.
