What should an electrical contractor be charging per hour for electrician and helper in metro boston area. I have been told that $140/hr is a good rate.

How about pricing new construction/renovation. Should I separate out the rough from the finish? Any thoughts on how to come up with bid price?

Are you an electrical contractor?

Or A home owner looking to cut your electrician down?

140 is low for 2 guys. It will pay the bills. But things like benifits are none existant at that rate.
You need to figure out your true costs before tossing out an hourly number.
You will be suprised at the hourly amount you need to charge

If you are a 4th year,say so in your profile,While you're waiting to challenge the Journeymen Electricians Exam please learn pricing by reading about it here.

You have 0 posts about electrical work,and that is why you're being questioned.

As an electrician yourself you should understand that we do not want an "hourly rate" of $440 per man hour to become the norm,considering what a low rate that is anyhow.

You cannot take on any work, on your own without first holding the required Journeymen electricians license and having the proper insurance.

If you do get bagged,Be prepared to loose ALL of your apprentice hours as punishment.
