In their defense the guys they pay are making at least $14 an hour. If two then you got $28 an hour right there. Add gas, vehicles, etc. and the reason they charge so much is to discourage people from using their men for such small jobs.

However if they're charging hundreds an hour that is absurd. $125 should be the most anyone should pay per hour for a team of two. One of those two better be CEDIA certified at $125 per hour.
