Fixed Price List April 2013

We at pcideals believe that labour charges should be clear and upfront with no hidden costs. We're pleased to outline our labour charges in the table below.

Diagnostic Fee

There is an initial £15 diagnostic fee on all jobs to confirm the fault. This fee is included in the final fixed price if the customer has the job completed with ourselves. You'll only pay this fee if we are unable to repair the problem or if you do not wish to proceed with the repair after we have spent time looking at it.
