You folks gave great advice, now my two cents, In my neck of the woods (NY) the going rate is $70 (low) ($90) high. I can afford it but I do not like to pay for things I can do myself. I believe I have accumulated three of everything over the years so nothing is a must fix today. After a little tutoring from a neighbor and a lot of youtube videos. I can now do many common repairs. (compression check, plug, clean carb, check coil). It is rewarding (to me) getting an old mower sitting for years running again. I am hardly a millenial but I purchase all my parts on line. One example, Honda air filter from Tractor Supply $18, On Ebay I get air filter, fuel filter and plug w/ship for $8. But, if you choose not to do it yourself, the shops need to charge these rates to stay afloat.
