  1ComputerCare Charges  

If the scope of the work is clearly definable at the start of a job, clients may choose a fixed price (examples below) before the start of the job.  Otherwise a variable time based rate, perhaps with a pre-determined maximum, will apply. 


The variable rate is 40 an hour for workshop based jobs or 50 an hour for work undertaken at the client's premises.  These rates will be reduced by 10% for invoices settled in full within 7 days.  Time is billed in and rounded to 6 minute increments and a minimum of one hour is charged except for remote support.  A fee only becomes payable if a resolution to your problem is delivered. 


Travel beyond 10 miles is charged at 45p per mile.  Also included with each workshop based job is 30 minutes to deliver, setup and demonstrate the PC with the problem resolved (60 minutes for a new computer delivery).
