As an independent service provider (self employed medical equipment repairman) I am regularly questioned about the hourly rates I charge. Sometimes I am asked why my rates are so high but I am equally asked how my rates can be so low. This has caused me to question if I am charging properly. I charge sixty-five dollars an hour and do not charge travel time within fifteen miles. What do you charge and what is your feeling on travel time. Please post your opinions as I am sure others are interested in this subject.
