I have a power screed that broke down on me and is out of warranty. There is a local guy around but to me his prices seem out of line. What's the going rate to get a power trowel or power screed fixed. I'm looking for hourly repair rate.
I usually compare it to what I'd pay to have my truck worked on but this is almost 2 times that! It'd be a good 2 hour drive for me to go anywhere else and I'd like to avoid that . Maybe I'm just going to a bad mechanic?
That is aproximately what we pay for tool repair as well - along with mark up on material. Actually most small service jobs around here are right at that rate (including ours) and we are in a very small, rural city.
