How much should you charge for your repair services? It really depends on how much your time is worth, how good you are at what you do, and how much your competition is charging. I typically charge $50/hour, however, I may up that rate to $60/hour in the near future.

You should never charge too little – it makes you look bad. How so, you ask? Well, by charging much less than everyone else it makes people (possible customers) question your abilities and wonder why you charge so little. However, you do not want to over charge, especially if you are just a local shop or do this occasionally as a side job. I have found that anywhere from $50-$75/hour is relatively common and affordable for most people.

People are willing to pay for your services (provided you can give professional support) so do not be afraid to charge people, of course you can give discounts to your friends if you are feeling generous.
