Hourly rate – Putting you in control

Downards operates on an hourly rate model. The cost is calculated from the time we arrive through to completion plus one-way travel. You can book us for a minimum of 2 hours.

Travel is a separate cost to the working and transport time. At Downards, we only charge for one way travel. This is the time taken to either get from our depot to your home or to return to our depot from your new home, whatever is greater. This cost is calculated at the agreed hourly rate.
