    Fifty bucks, plus four thousand dollars travel time.

    approx $60 here....depending on system size(number of zones) could be even more than $100 for a large comm. open/close.

    Even if you have a remote..two people are needed for start-up & winterize.
    Not just the laborer...two journeymen...walk the zones, looking for problems
    you missed last walkthru...for us, great work, if we get to it before the
    season kicks in. So, it's back to the old question: what do you charge? I'd say
    two "Pros from Dover" start up to 15 zones....$150.00. Winterize is easy that way, too: same price + 125cfm compressor, using a lower cfm would be a
    huge rip off at that price because of the time taken. For you guys that don't have a remote for your regular clients, get with it! Um, get the cool remote.:waving:

    If they call to scedule before May 1st its $65 , after May 1st , $100. Its an incentive to get em to call early and makes booking calls close together a lot easier and more profitable.
