tandem pack jobs Can't Post

What is the going rate for a tandem pack job in the US.?

Ive just been cleared to pack the dz"s tandem equipment and dont want to get ripped off, and dont want to ask for too much.

I jump in England so if anyone knows the prices over here, that would be a help too.

I think it's about 5 or 6 pounds, but don't hold me to it.

Depends on the DZ, but at my home DZ they make $5 for sport rigs and $10 for tandems.

At Raeford, we pay ten bucks to pack a tandem and five for solo gear.

I just read on uk.rec.skydiving that Peter Frampton is now packing tandems for 8 quid. Costs extra if you want a guitar solo thrown in.

At Pitt Meadows, Canada, they pay CAN$10 per tandem pack job and CAN$5 per solo pack job.
We have a hard time keeping packing staff, so we are probably underpaid.
The up-side is that I earned $100 after the rest of the staff went home yesterday! Ha!
Last thing I heard, Perris Valley, California was paying US$7 per solo pack job and over US$10 per tandem pack job.
