Alan’s Car Care Centre specializes in providing car tune-ups, brake jobs, and tire replacements for most vehicle makes and models. Alan’s charges customers for materials “at cost” but charges labour at a rate of $87 per hour. The labour rate is high enough to cover actual mechanic wages ($29 per hour) and shop overhead (allocated at a cost of $18 per hour), and to provide a profit. Giles recently had a 72,000-km service performed on his car. Materials used on the job included $15.50 for oil and filter, $65.45 for transmission fluid exchange, $21.35 for the air filter, and $32.78 for the cabin filter. The mechanic spent 1.75 hours on the job.
