Cambria Computer Repair

Coastal & Inland Communities Information


I do not sell computers, but I often order parts and equipment for clients. The list includes such things as memory, hard drives, network routers, wireless cards, cables, USB accessories, printers, and accessories — basically everything but the computer itself. Virtually everything is sold to you at my cost, plus applicable tax and shipping. I comparison-shop the online retailers to find the best prices

Labor rates and Invoicing

My standard labor rate is $64/hour. I often do not charge for part of the time spent doing support or instruction, to keep your costs down. Travel time is not charged. For clients, email support and short telephone calls are free! (Calls over 1/2 hour will be billed at a reduced rate of $16 per half-hour.)

Invoices are mailed on the last day of each month, to all clients who have incurred charges during that month.
