It is too late then! Be sure to ask the price before the work is done. Don’t wait to be disappointed with the job or price.

Expected go get a good idea as to the problems and anticipated hours needed.

Without taking the time to take the computer apart and look to see what the problem might be, it is many times impossible to tell how many hours it will take to do the job. Sometimes it is just a simple software solution or hardware replacement, you will need to be a little flexible with this kind of answer.

You will need to use you own judgment to determine whether the estimate you are given is reasonable or are you being charged too much. If you are uneasy, check around and get another estimate for the job. Go elsewhere if the computer repair shop can not give you a close estimate as to the cost of repair before they want to work on your computer. You do not want to pay more then your computer replacement cost would be.

“Ask about a Minimum Charge?”.

Many times the computer problem is a quick fix and the repair will take less then a half hour. Many repair shops will charge a minimum of one hour billing time for repairs.

Expected Answer: “Yes, our minimum bench charge is one billable hour.”.

Most computer repair services will charge you 1 hour of labor for any time up to one hour spent working on your PC. This is sometimes called a minimum bench charge and is completely customary.

If you’re lucky, your favorite local computer repair service will have a minimum bench charge of only 1/2 of their billable hour, however I don’t see this very often anymore.

It is not common practice for extra service fees.

You should not be paying for extra service fees in most computer repair shops. If there are extra fees, ask for a list of them in writing before you leave your computer with them.
