2015 National Pricing Survey Results

The Morrow Report

This report was created and designed for Fitzgerald’s by Wendy Morrow of Nashville, TN. Wendy started her automotive interior restoration business around 1983. She died of a stroke in October of 2005.

Since 1989, thanks to Wendy’s average charges report, Fitzgerald’s has annually surveyed mobile repair-techs from all over the US. Since the responses come from all regions from techs with various degree of experience, this gives you an accurate, overall national average of charges for your service.
