Rates and Fees

When you hire the engineers at Mechanical Engineering Professionals, LLC for your contract projects, you are hiring some of the most skilled and creative mechanical design engineers in the country. We perform work at a senior level and have immense experience in most facets of mechanical design, product design and development, automation and robotic systems, and opto-mechanical engineering. We are top professionals in our field and charge rates commensurate with our level of skill. However, we pride ourselves on offering competitive rates. Most lawyers charge much more per hour for their time. And because we are a smaller company, we don’t have large overhead. Nor do we have a large office and big administrative staff. These factors allow us to handle smaller jobs and price our services much lower than many competitors.

We do not have a flat rate structure unless we negotiate an hourly rate or set up and bill for a time and materials contract. Our quotations are mainly based on a proprietary formula that factors in the scope and details of the design, which engineers and how many will be needed to work on the design, and any risk or hazard that might be involved in that type of work, among other factors.

Most projects involving Mechanical Engineering Professionals, LLC
can be estimated at the rate of $140 per hour for a senior engineer and $90 per hour for a junior engineer.
