That (multiple jobs on the go) doesnít mean the work is being overpriced, more that the business is effectively utilising resources. Workshop costs take in an awful lot; many are paying commercial rent, there are repayments on plant and equipment, and at the end of it the operators reasonably expect to do a little better than if they were just on a wage.

And, a savvy operator factors in the cost of maintaining positive client relationships (AKA having a chat) in subtle ways.  ;)

Iíve witnessed specialists doing two patients basically at the same time (in a public hospital).

But their fees are a long way from plumbing or mechanical repairs.

Ahh but your clients have multiple Alfaís... that usually all need your attention.  Touch one and the other gets jealous (cars, not clients)
