Hi guys, first time posting to the forums.
I am a new shop owner, recently purchased an A/C machine.
Do you guys have standard pricing you follow? Pricing for leak checks, price per pound of refrigerant, top up if required? Let me know your A/C pricing matrix. Thanks so much for the help!

I'm training to start a new business, and am tasked to learn the top goals and challenges of auto repair shop owners.
I know you don't know me... but I hope you wouldn't mind taking 60 seconds to help.
From your experience, what's the #1 most urgent or worrisome pain point a repair shop seeks to overcome?
And was the answer something else, before COVID-19?
Thanks in advance.
