I'm sure some people are gonna get mad and/or annoyed that I'm asking this. If your not comfortable, obviously, don't comment. I live in Northern California and charge $25 an hour on time and material jobs. I am able to charge for one way drive time when the job is 1 hour or more away. I know some contractors in my area charge "shop hours" of $50, but when your doing a time and materials job what do you get in your area?
