I've recently fixed up a few laptops for some mates and acquaintances who were quite happy with the results. One of them has asked me to come into his small office and take a look at the 5 computers there. When I fixed the laptops, I got about $50 ea (for varying amounts of work) and only charged as they insisted. I'm wondering what I should charge for fixing up the office PCs. My plan is to go in to take a look at the situation and write down all the work that needs to be done and give a time estimate. The client told me to charge 'whatever I like' for the service as it can be written off as a corporate expense, but I am sure it must be within reason I was thinking of something along the lines of $30 p/h + software/hardware costs. Does this seem too little or too much? A little bit of context as to why he is asking me to go in: I'm in Vietnam, and it is often a struggle to get 'tech people' over here to understand what you want or need, and then there is no guarantee that the work will be done properly. He's already had the in-house 'technician' up to have a look, but the problems haven't been fixed. I know that I'll need to go in and take a look at the size of the project, list the services that I will provide in a quote and get a signature before even agreeing to take on the job, I'm just worried about what the going rate would be for something like this.
