Labor - Non-union venues

Standard working day is 10 hours.
-- Overtime rate of time-and-a-half from 10-14 hours. The rate is $45/hr to $52.50/hr depending on the situation.
-- Overtime rate of double-time after 14 hours.
The rate is $90/hr to $105/hr depending on the situation.

Entry and clean up of scripts on-site is part of the day rate. However, there are charges for entry and clean up of scripts if done so prior to arrival on the job. The first half-hour is free, but every hour after that is $30 per hour.

* Day starts are based on call time and end after equipment is struck and loaded-out ... there are two exceptions to this:
-- jobs beyond a 60 mile radius of the Chicagoland area will be based on portal-to-portal times.
-- jobs that involve lodging off show site start and end their day based on departure and arrival times at the lodging hotel.
* For consecutive days of operation an eight hour turn-around is required - if one is not provided an additional $15/hr will be charged for the hours worked on the consecutive day/s.
* Work performed between Midnight and 6:00 am will be charged an additional $15/hr on top of standard costs (day rate and/or overtime, if any)


Labor - Union venues

Our labor charges will fall under the contract that the union venue operates under.


Travel

Travel Day $350/day
Per Diem $ 75/day
Mileage current federal
- Mileage is charged beyond a 60 mile radius of the operators start-point (see Labor)

* Costs for airline tickets and lodging are not the responsibility of SGW Teleprompter Solutions or its operators. These costs must be taken care of by the contracting entity or the end client.
* Per diem is required prior to departure from Chicago.
* Any day that includes set-up, strike, rehearsal, or operation of the teleprompter equipment does not qualify as a travel day and will be charged as a work day.
* On travel days when flying is involved the workday begins two hours prior to the scheduled departure from the airport and/or ends one hour after the actual arrival of the flight.
* All transportation (taxi or limo), parking, tips, shipping and/or excess baggage costs will be invoiced at the end of the job.


Payment

* SGW Teleprompter Solutions invoices on a Net 30 basis (with an exception immediately below). If payment is not received within that time period a late fee of 5% will accrue after the first thirty days, and 5% every 15 days thereafter. After Net 30 any discounts are negated and become full price. Note that any invoices past due over 6 months will be resolved either through a collection agency, through small claims court, or other options at our discretion - the cost of doing so will be the responsibility of the client, person, or company that is late.
* New clients and companies from outside of the Chicagoland area are required to pay for 100% of SGW Teleprompter Solutions' services the first date of the job -- we can generate an invoice in advance of the job to pay from. Any unforeseen or additional expenses (overtime, parking, etc.) will be invoiced separately, after the job is completed.
* Money orders, checks, cash, credit cards through PayPal (Visa and Mastercard) are accepted for payment. PayPal payments will be charged an additional 4% to recover PayPal's fees.
* Any questions or disputes about the costs on invoices we supply must be raised before the due date. Once the due date has passed the Total listed on the invoice is final.
* At union venues we will provide an invoice for equipment rental, and labor costs will go on the Union payroll.


Cancellation

Cancellation must be received via phone at 773-402-0105. Cancellations made by any other means (e-mail, fax, etc.) will be at our discretion as to whether it falls within or outside of the cancellation time limits.

For jobs of two days or less duration:
-- A cancellation fee will be charged for less than one full business day notice that the job is canceled. The cancellation fee is 100 percent of the price quoted or bid.

For jobs of three days or more duration:
-- A cancellation fee of 75 percent of the price quoted or bid will be charged for less than two full business days notice that the job is canceled.

A business day is considered as Monday through Friday. For example, if the job is on Wednesday cancellation would have to occur before Tuesday. We do not use call times as the basis of our calculations.

Most jobs use our teleprompting packages and are charged and bid using those prices as a basis. However, if cancellation changes the structure of the packages or bid prices the a la carte prices above will be used to determine new costs.

If dates/project hours are canceled/changed during a job those dates are subject to our one full business day notice policy. Example, we are booked for a job of three day duration (Tuesday through Thursday). But on Wednesday the client cancels use of teleprompter on Thursday -- 100% of the price for Thursday will still be charged.


Additional Notes

Estimates are available by request or will be supplied at our discretion. There is space at the bottom of the estimate for a signature -- the estimate must be signed and returned to us by email or fax to engage our services.

Please review the estimate thoroughly as it is your responsibility to make sure it meets your expectations. Any questions about the estimate must be raised before the job starts. Your signature engages our services and tunrs the estimate into a contract.

Clients with payment policies over Net 30 to Net 60 will have $25/day added to the Rental Price List costs. Clients with payment policies over Net 60 to Net 90 will have $50/day added to the Rental Price List costs. Clients with payment policies over Net 90 will have $75/day added to the Rental Price List costs.


All rates subject to change.
