As per title.

Software was provided ... all legal.

Just the labour.

But I'm cheap, I know.
For that they get all updates done and their data transferred as well.
Also, mail of their choice set up, imported if necessary, and I always ensure their contacts are imported (if they want Outlook / pop3).

One hours labour for PC preparation, saving files sorting out what sw the owner wants to keep and re-install.
Two hours labour to do the upgrades, even though it might take 8 hours or more, most of the time it only requires a few seconds to check on progress.
1 more hour for final clean up and verification.
This is the maximum

I would guess R600 to R800, depending on extras.

Not sure there's much of a market anymore though, most people seem to have a family member to help these days.

I usually charge a flat rate of R 750 for a Windows 10 & MS Office install & setup on a PC or Laptop - plus any additional configuration that might be required, such as updates, email setup or data migration - as long as they have valid licence keys for all their software - and allocate an entire day for the process.

Exactly what I do, but you didn't answer the question - How much?
