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