Make sure to ask what their shop rate is if they are charging by the hour, I would say 1 hour max and alot of shops charge 1 hour minimum. So at my shop it would be $65.
Also ask if you can walk back and look at the install befor the car comes off the lift, they may let you, just to make sure all the hangers are secure and everything is right. It is hard to look at the job they did by laying on the ground in your driveway afterwards. It never hurts to ask.
Maybe on the install, but when people think about taking their car some where to get work done they do not take in consideration the time it takes to pull the car in and put on the lift, (depending on the lift) getting out the required tools and then taking it off the lift, pulling it outside and ringing the customer up. extra 15 to 20 mins.
When billing a customer for work all time is considered.
Time also depends if the installer is paid hourly or by piece rate. If I'm being paid piece rate, I move much quicker.
