Your towns shop labor rates

Recommended Posts

Over the years of working on cars I have been blown away by the difference in shop labor rates from one town to the next. Alot of shops now wont even list or tell you their labor rates any more because they are ashamed/afraid to tell you.

The previous shop I worked at is 20 miles away from where I live. There rate was at $120 per hour for technical work. The town I live in is at $60. I heard from a shop in southern MN and they just upped theirs from $40 to $50 per hour

What is the rate at your shop/town?

Please no shop names!

Our dealership is at $130/hr. I think that is way to high.

...and they wonder why they only get the warranty work with that price.

I've seen small engine shops from $70 -$85 around the south metro.

Dont know what the auto shops charge.

    • Does a drunk daddy long stagger?   Yes…. For about about 3 inches.  Then nuthin’. I think he’s passed out.   He was luvin that cap.   Just ask and you’ll receive. 😉
    • I picked this stuff up at Fleet a month or so ago when the Boxelder bugs first started coming out, and I had them all over in my house. I bet you after one spraying around the edges of the house and the door thresholds I haven’t had five bugs in my house since. My wife was killing 20 to 25 of the dam things a day crawling around the living room and bedrooms. Bad thing is I haven’t seen hardly a hummingbird since either, I’ve been told they are really susceptible to insecticides. It worked great on the ants to. 
    • Thanks for the id! Here is a flock of some Eastern tiger swallowtails.          
    • I went to take my little boat out and found a wren nested in the winch tower.  Little chirps coming from inside.  Momma not happy.   Figured I’d wait a week or two since I didn’t really need it yet and they could clear out.  Then I found out wrens often nest twice per year and up till August! 🤨   Guess I’ll be disturbing them after all.

    • Ants overran me this week on the oriole feeder. A little spray of ant killer at the bottom foot of the pole seems to have stopped them. These were the little tiny ones. I’m guessing all the rain really flooded their nests.
