General Labor Rates

Need to know how a handyman company charges General Labor Rates?

Understanding our General Labor Rates is Simple:

To start, we charge $150 for the first labor-hour, as a service fee, regardless if the work takes 1 hour or 15 minutes, and any subsequent labor-hour is $75 up to 8 concurrent labor-hours. We respect all employment laws. Our general labor rates are designed to be easy to calculate and be straight forward to our clients and workers to understand. 

It’s important to mention, that if the service address is inside our service areas – check it out here – the time starts counting when we arrive at your property. Otherwise, if you want us to work outside our service area, we start charging when the workers leave the office in West Hollywood.

In order to validate the hours worked, each worker produces a report of the services provided with a gps tracker, including the hours worked. It’s easy and simple to check.

Beyond General Labor Rates:

When a company needs work, repeatedly, we provide bulk hourly contract pricing for management and maintenance companies according to our policies.

For the purpose to expedite work, we can acquire items, transport them from and to the job, for the same hourly rate, plus reimbursements, according to our policies.

Being that every job produces some trash, we can dispose of trash that doesn’t fit in your dumpster by removing from your property, for an extra fee according to our policies.

Since we cannot carry every tool for all jobs in our trucks,  we can pick up rental tools, and deliver it back, for the same hourly rate, and under our reimbursement policies.

Invoices and Payments

Labor Rates discounts and coupons:

*Due to prior instances of abuse, there are some discounts restrictions and coupon limitations: Any markdowns are to be taken off from regular labor prices. 

Additionally, there is a limit of only once per address, per client, per year. 

Moreover, discounts or coupons are not accepted in combination with any other offers or coupons. 

What must be remembered, is that coupons have to be claimed when booking the work over the phone, and in addition, have to be presented to worker prior to commencing work; therefore, coupons are not valid on prior work, especially on work in progress or  already completed. 

To conclude this section, materials charge and required kits, harnesses, parts, and extensive or qualified-specialty labor is extra according to our policies.

By now you must have figured it out that we got screwed by an attorney, which piled up many coupons, made us pay for her materials, got the job done for free and got way scot-free using the legal system! Now you all have to pay for it by having to read and understand this disclaimer! Once you are at it, read this disclaimer too!  It’s ridiculous how people rationalize taking advantage of others using legal loopholes!
