I calculate prices based on service costs, overhead and the time to complete a service. You can view my website with prices through the www button at the bottom of my post. Your prices seem VERY low to me… I don't have time to type a detailed formula right now, but if you go to my profile and then click the button to view my previous posts, I have typed in really detailed info on how to set prices so that you actually get paid!
I went to look up a thread for you… but it appears that the forum is now set to only show two pages worth of old posts - so frustrating that all the good info that seasoned techs have posted is unavailable to new people! I will try to come back later to post… where is everyone? It seems like there's hardly any activity for the past couple months - and I know I'm guilty of that, as I haven't been on in almost two months!
Ok, it took some searching, but here's the thread where I spelled out how I calculate prices:
