Shop Labor Rate is $75.00 per hour

Homeowner Service

Here at Brunswick Home and Garden, we take many things into account when servicing your machine. One of the most common question we get is "How much is this going to cost?" With this in mind, we have what is called a shop rate. Shop rate is a maximum amount of money it will take to service a unit to a safe and useable state. Your unit goes through several stages before it is determined what the estimated cost of repairs will be, and if it will exceed the shop rate. Factors such as age of the unit, degree of service needed and the total estimated cost of repairs versus replacement of the unit. If the estimated cost of repair for your unit is under the shop rate for it's type, we will then proceed with repair of your unit. If the cost is higher than the shop rate, we will contact you and see where you want to go with service. It's this system of maximum service rates that allows us to service multiple pieces of equipment quickly, while lowering the bottom line for the customer.

Estimate Fees

When we take in equipment, a deposit is required. This deposit will be applied to the cost of repairs if repairs are completed. If the unit is in a state where repair is not possible or cost effective, this is applied as a estimate fee. This is designed to cover the costs of the mechanic reviewing the equipment.
