What ever the market will accept. I don't charge a lot for emergencies as its a great way to get new customers and more work.

For Emergencies usually depending on the situation and timing premium plus charges apply due to the gathering of resources at a moments notice. The rates start at $25/hr and range depending on services.

Hope this helps.

$25/hr? This is horrible advice.Do you pay yourself $10?

A skilled worker with tools and a truck is going to be paid at least $25/hour in wages alone. Consider taxes, WSIB, overhead and profit. Minimum charge per hour is $50.
