Quoting jobs is a very inaccurate way to work, often rust is hidden and isn’t fully exposed until the area is cleaned up. Quoting by some, can lead to corner cutting or the quote itself will be excessive to try to cover the unforeseen.
This is why I charge by the hour, you pay for the time I work.
However, if you need a fixed price for a job, feel free to contact me and I will provide an estimate.
From the workshop you’ll get email or text updates on everything I do, along with progress reports, or if mobile, as I would then travel to you, you’ll be there to see what’s going on and have as much input as you wish.
Of course, classic cars aren’t your gas bill or mortgage, they are often a passion or hobby. As such, all cars have a budget.
I am more than happy to spread mobile work out on agreed timescales, capped daily, weekly, monthly, whatever suits your budget.
If its a workshop job, I always have a conversation with the customer to be clear on exactly what work is required.
Workshop labour is £30 per hour.
Mobile labour is £30 per hour plus a one way per hour travelling charge.
For example, driving for one hour or less to get to you then working six hours, would come to;
£30 (travelling) + £180 ( 6 hours) =
To work this out on Google maps, my workshop postcode is B33 8BU.
I run a workshop, so if you dont have cover, I can work on your car there. If mobile, a covered workspace is preferred, but not essential, I am happy to work on a driveway as long as it’s not raining.
On that note, if its raining all day, and we need to cancel because you have no cover, don’t worry, you can’t control the weather, we’ll reschedule at no extra cost.
Generally I apply anti rust treatment, and primer after I have finished welding In the workshop. If underneath I can apply stonechip or similar to your preference.
Please enquire if you want top coat paint applying.
Don‘t worry, many classic cars have a limited aftermarket support, I am fully skilled in fabricating repair sections for whatever car you drive.
