Rates & Quick Quote

TEC’s fees are based on the length and difficulty of the project and on fair market rates. 

For a Quick Quote, fill out our online form and send us a few pages of your work (up to 4 pages). Please note these are not hard and fast costs, but estimates to help us determine a budget for your project. We do not charge for these estimates. 

We will send the estimate to you by email for your review. We can then have a phone chat to discuss the estimate and, more importantly, to discuss your project. Once we have the details confirmed, we can set a schedule to get you started.
