    Thank you for replying. This is the first day as a member of this site, so please be patience with me. I have done some searches, but didn't really help. can you relate to what you charge or suggest a site to visit?

    Well my price is dictated by my overhead costs. So I have to charge XX when you only have to charge YY. You dont have as big of an overhead as I do, so really me giving you my prices wont help much.. but I charge anywhere from $35-$55 per man/per hour.
