My Fees

Since most of my customers are Church members or neighbors in the local neighborhood, and many are elderly people on fixed incomes, I am keeping my fees as low as possible.  

  • Labor charges are $20.00 per half hour or portion of, with a one half hour minimum charge.

  • Repairs such as replacing bad power supply changing out the CPU fan and other minor parts are charged at the current hourly fee (maximum 2 hours) plus parts cost.
  • General PC Preventive Maintenance. $60.00. A major cause of trouble in all desktop computers is dirt . All desktop computers need a general cleanup yearly. My PM consist of opening the pc, vacuuming the inside to remove all dirt and dust buildup , resetting all cards to clean the contacts and ensuring that all fans are clean and running correctly. (a slow fan can cause the processor chip to overheat, causing intermitting problems.) It also includes, checking the pc to make sure it has all the latest security patches for the current Operating System installed, checking that the current anti-virus program has up to-date virus definitions, running a registry clean up program and running a hard drive defrag. If the pc has a printer attached will print a report showing all hardware and programs on the pc.
