    Guys, how do most of you price up work? If you're self employed? Do you go per point? Or see how long it will take you? What do you average per day? What do you tend to charge for your points? Roughly?

    I tend not to price by point as it never seems to work out for me and is a ballache to figure out when every job differs in situation and effort.

    I price by time and materials using experience. This experience has come by making many pricing mistakes and is probably only relevant to the type of customers I have and the local area I work in. ie it's hard to define and may not be much help to you anyway.

    I'd like to enter this post for least helpful post of the year if there is such an award.

    Not much use to you but there is no hard and fast rule as if its say a full or partial rewire then a per point plus x amount on top as a margin might work; but on smaller jobs you pretty much need to go on time, if the job will take half a day including travel, admin etc then price it to reflect what you expect to earn and your over heads + materials for the half days work.

    Per point only works on rewires

    Anything else is calculated based on experience

    i use both methods and if the 2 results are within 20% of each other, i think i got it right. so i usually split the difference.
