...I often tell my clients they have a choice between a written quote and an hourly wage. I tell them that we can do the work and bill fairly when its done, or I can write up a proposal for them. It helps to let them know that you've had happy customers with both approaches...
Developing a solid client base that will vouch for your integrity can help to ease people's minds about an hourly rate, which often works well for the client and for you - the job often gets bigger when they are pleased with your progress which benefits you both!
