No it's not another thread asking how much everyone is charging. I can figure out how much I want to charge on my own. I am curious, however, as to how everyone presents their service call (if they have one). Does your service call cover the first hour, 1/2 hour, 1/4 hour, or does it just cover the trip out there to knock on your door and then you'll start charging hourly? I've been looking at previous posts and a lot of prices people show are the same for an hour (our average call time) although they look different with the way they present them with the service call and hourly rate. Dont take these examples too seriously as I just made them up off the top of my head. Company 1 charges $25 service call that covers 1/4 hour and $70hr Company 2 charges $45 service call that covers 1/2 hour and $56hr which would a homeowner go for? they are pretty close (if i did the math right). After 1/2 hour company one charged $42.5 while company 2 charged $45. After an hour company 1 charged $77.50 while company 2 charged $73.
