I get $25 for advice! Well, that's what I charge, have never gotten it yet! But, sounds like the rates vary around the country, have you checked the surrounding area?

$60 average sevice call
$125 first hr mobile.
Remember it seems alot but u need to make a living with your skills and equiptment and uncle sam is going to want his cut.
Most big co. are $80/hr with a 4 hr min and $80 service call and if your not ready, they will stand there and wait until u are............
At the shop $35/hr

As someone mentioned, rates are going to vary by area. What I have done in the past is get out the Yellow Pages and call around to different shops in your area and act as if you are a customer. Check their rates and price yours accordingly.
