Our service call is just a minimum charge at our standard rate.
A service call is applicable to every job. This covers the first hour of our time, including travel to you from Noosaville. Upon arrival, we will often need to discuss work with you, advise, consult and apply our experience in order to commence work. This effectively means that the service fee also serves as a consultation fee.
While we can often complete basic service jobs within this time, additional time to complete work may be required and is chargeable at $93/hr. (Billed in quarter hour increments.)
Our time is charged from Noosaville and includes the travel however far that is. In the case of sites over 20 Km from Noosaville the service call is higher to cover travel back. See below for details.

Appliance Repairs and Component Replacement
We would like to warn in advance that the replacement of components in appliances and air conditioners occasionally results in us finding further issues that were not apparent until the first item was replaced.
On average the repair of an appliance cost half the cost of a new one and is not always successful. We always recommend full replacement of any machine over 5 years' old.
We require at least 50% deposit for these types of jobs before we can proceed.

Any product we supply we will remove all the packaging as you would expect. In the case of rubbish removal of the packaging of products we didn't supply we will charge a fee of $20 to cover tip fee's.
