    Does anyone charge a surcharge for Saturday appointmets? I pay my guys overtime and without one working Saturdays realy isnt quite as profitable.
    If so, did customers complain when you first enacted it?

    We rarely schedule for Saturdays. I use that day to catch up on things we could not quite finish. Occasionally we will schedule Saturdays, but it's always for longtime good customers. and I haven't charged extra. I should, but I don't. could change though.

    One thing I'm changing this year, is to have one day a week during the spring and fall where we each work late. On that day we will also start our day late. This will give a little more flexibility to some customers. Probably a different day for each tech.
