Fees and pricing


We offer a range of rates to suit your requirements. We also offer a unique overnight "rush job" service.

Please check our basic terms and conditions, and have a look at our sample contract, to see if our services meet your needs.

Hourly rates apply to smaller jobs and contracts. Please ask us to quote on larger projects or longer-term contracts.

We are located in Tarago, NSW. We will come and visit your office or handy cafe to discuss your project if you're within 100km of Canberra (including Goulburn or surrounds). Longer distances will incur travel costs.
