Customer reimburses all parking charges, as well as lodging and meals for overnight stays.
Pricing for other services (e.g., managed services, service agreements, network monitoring, disaster recovery and business continuity, offsite backup) depend on many factors and are quoted on a case by case basis. Contact us for more information on any of these services.
Billing and Payment Policies
Unless other arrangements are made in advance, payment for hardware and software must be made upon acceptance of quotation; all other fees are due upon completion of services. Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted; however, all rates are based upon cash/ACH payment and reflect a cash discount. Payment via credit card voids any payment discounts.
Each past due invoice will be charged a late fee of $35 and the maximum interest rate allowed by law. Rates set out above are subject to change at any time without notice. A charge of $35 will be added to all returned checks.
