Turnaround time

The turnaround time for your job will be discussed and negotiated with you and will be taken into account when providing an estimate. If you require a job to be completed urgently (within seven days), CES will charge a supplementary flat fee of £60.00 in addition to the estimated fee.

Out of hours work

If a job can only be completed outside of normal office hours, the fee will be charged at one and a half the normal rate for the work.
