Unlike some organizations, I won't make you fill out a sales-droid form before disclosing dollar figures.
My rates are hourly, and scaled relative to my preferences and existing commitments.
If you do not care what time of day I work for you, my aggregate rate is $150 per hour.
Otherwise, rates are distributed as follows.
|Weekends, normal business hours (9am - 5pm)||$125|
|Weekdays, evening hours (5pm - 10pm)||$150|
|Weekends, evening hours (5pm - 10pm)||$200|
|Weekdays, normal business hours (9am - 5pm)*||$250*|
|Nights (10pm - 7am)||$300|
|Early mornings (7am - 9am)||$500|
|Friends and family discount (applied at my discretion)||50% off all rates|
|* My day job takes precedence. These hours are very scarce.|
Rates are also adjusted based on (in/)flexibility of scheduling:
For some low-key activities, I aim for a stock time estimate. For example, when removing minor malware from personal computers, two hours of actual work is the estimated time required, even if I choose to spread this out across a couple of days, do other things while malware scans are running, etc. I will contact you for authorization if work is likely to exceed the estimate. Also be aware that more challenging or urgent work takes precedence, and that I usually only perform personal system maintenance for family, friends, and associates.
For other rates, including fixed-bid pricing for specific projects, contact me.
