Payment Options

We accept Venmo, cash, and checks written out to APPA Lex.

Time of Payment

For small jobs (3 hours or less) payment in full is due upon completion of the job.

For jobs or series of jobs 4 hours or more in a week and for those with monthly retainers, 50% payment is due upon confirmation of booking, and the remainder is due upon completion of the work.

Pricing Structure

We offer our services for a standard hourly rate of $30 per hour. You must start with a one-hour minimum, and additional time will be prorated in increments of 15 minutes.

Small business owners or individuals needing a large amount of work over a monthly period can benefit from purchasing an upfront retainer at a reduced hourly rate. Anyone requiring at least eight hours of work each month can purchase that time upfront for $25 an hour. We do need 3 days notice prior to the beginning of the month, so we can allocate time accordingly.

Fill out our contact form above. We will follow up to gather some information about the kind of help you need. We may schedule a brief phone call for more complex projects. During that call, we make sure we understand what you need, discuss the estimated time required for your tasks, budget/pricing, and payment options.
We schedule consultations when we need to better understand your needs. We want to provide the best service possible!

Our goal with an initial consultation is to review your needs and what you’d like to get out of a relationship with us. We will use your time to walk through potential solutions and review next steps.
Services vary by your location. Delivery and small tasks are available in Lexington only, while larger projects and remote work is open to anyone in Fayette and contiguous counties.
