Rates

I charge $48 per hour, prorated. Cost of parts, tax (if applicable), and cost of return shipment are additional.
I only charge for actual work done. I do not charge for research, parts-ordering time, telephone time, email contact, or “head scratching” time.
Although rare, a deposit may be required for expensive parts that need to be ordered.

Typical Repair Costs:
Most repairs consist of 1 to 3 hours of labor, at $48 per hour, prorated.
The total cost is usually in the $100 to $200 range, including return shipment via UPS Ground.

Estimates:
I charge $30 for an estimate. This fee is waived if you decide to have the radio repaired.
Please note: It is impossible for every estimate to be completely accurate. Sometimes, there can be other problems uncovered that were not readily apparent before repairs began.

“Ballpark” Estimates:
Realistically, I can’t make an estimate without first examining the radio. It’s usually not practical to calculate all the possible scenarios beforehand.

Shipping Costs:
To calculate your shipping costs, please go to the UPS, FedEx, or USPS website (whichever is applicable).
To calculate return shipping costs, please go to the UPS website.
My zip-code is 04937. Be sure to select “residential” address.

Warning: “The UPS Store” may have significantly higher pricing than actual UPS customer centers.
