Entry Level - Assurance Plan

Entry LevelYour should consider the Entry Level if you are a single user or a really small business who only has 1 or 2 PC's and you don't rely on the computers for your source of living. The reason I say this is that any person or business that relies on their computers for a living should consider the business level for a more consistent and reliable service contingency.

Benefits

The biggest benefit of the Entry Level Assurance Plan is that the cost to you is very low in comparison to the other Levels of Assurance.

Drawbacks

The drawback is that there is less Assurance, and higher probability of something going awry during our absence. Each level of Assurance Plan has its benefits and drawbacks.

Rate for the Entry Level Assurance Plan

My standard rates are as follows. The initial consultation fee is $40 for the preparation and travel time and a minimum of 1.5 hours charge per PC at our normal rate which is $80/hr. The total cost of $160 per PC is for the initial setup, cleanup and preparation for follow up visits. Not only will we do an evaluation of the PC's at the time of the consultation but we will also clean up any and all found temp files, malware, addware, and viruses. The initial evaluation and cleanup of the PC's always takes the longest for the first contact with the computers. The subsequent following visits on average will only take 20 to 30 minutes. This includes checking Critical Updates, verification of updated anti-virus software, cleanup of addware, spyware, and or malware; cleanup and removal of all temporary files, and finally the initiation of the defragmentation of hard drives.
