Rush Charges

Recommended Posts

Wondering what you all would recommend for figuring up rush charges?


In most cases, my hourly fee is $35 (I have a couple of clients I've given a discounted rate to) and I put in every client's contract that "holiday and rush fees may apply" just as a precaution for myself, but I've never actually had to charge one, so I've never decided how much it would be. ha.


How do you all handle rush fees? Is it a certain percentage of your hourly rate (Like time and a half for overtime if we were at a "normal" job elsewhere)? Or is it a flat number you tack on at the end? And, if so, how much?


Thank you!

My contract says...


"Rush jobs are sometimes available but are charged 1 hour plus ½ hour. So a job taking 1 hour will cost you 1.5 hours as a rush job."


I always have to remind clients of a rush fee when the time comes, and they usually say it can wait.
