    Charge roughly what you get you for your paid job for scheduled stuff, double it for emergency call-out. Charge in blocks of 2 or 4 hours. Include expenses (lunch bought from the nearby Tesco will have cost more than your normal lunch that day, etc).

    Of course, since you've already done the work for them, you could charge wtf you want - it isn't like they can say no now

    Or the fact that you want a BMW when you're older.. not to mention rent and mortgage payment increases... And then there's your other half wanting a nice rock in her engagement ring... It all adds up you know.


    ... if only!!

    I don't reckon thats anywhere near enough - you wouldn't get a plumber or electrician for that money. I broke a key in our back door the other day - it was £70 call out for a locksmith and he was only there about 5 minutes.
