    I am new and have had good success bidding a job as a flat rate derived from man hours to do the work by $60 an hour. If I think it will take me 5 hours alone, I charge $300... Bring a helper and do it in 2.5

    I thought it would be too high, but people are not complaining and are still setting up jobs.
