Beginning December 1st we will be increasing our labor rates to compensate for the rising cost of utilities and other expenses. All repair work will be $95.00 per hour, and restorations will be $85.00 per hour. This increase will apply to all new work after Dec. 1st. Any cars being worked on that are already in our shop prior to Dec. 1st will not be affected by the new hourly rates.
$95.00 per hour
This is our labor rate for all repairs and body work on any car in the shop. It is charged per time spent working on the car. Any and all parts and consumables will be an additional cost. Because of the many unknown factors when working on a classic car all work is done on a by the hour basis ONLY.
$85.00 per hour
This is the labor rate for the restoration of a first generation Mustangs. It covers all phases and processes of a car restoration. It does not include any parts or consumables. It will bring a car to the stage where it will be ready for final body prep and painting, which is included in the price of a quoted paint job.
Payment will be expected and required at time car is picked up. In the case of where the car is in the shop for an extended period , the labor and other charges will be billed on a weekly basis via email and payment will be expected within 5 days of receipt of emailed invoice. Any parts required where the amount exceeds $300.00 payment may be requested for amount prior to ordering of parts.
A draw will be required in the amount of $10,000.00 when the car is received in the shop. This draw will apply to both labor and parts. When the balance of the draw falls to $3500.00 the owner will be notified and the draw amount will be replenished to $10,000.00 this will continue for the entire period of the restoration of the car. Any balance remaining when restoration is completed will be returned. An invoice will be sent weekly showing draw balance, hours worked and invoices for parts used.
