Mark - industry rates for a tower crew is $70.00 - $110.00 per hour / PER MAN - That doesn't include travel which most bill out at $50.00/hour PER man for travel time.
This would be a full days work with a 3 man crew - Most will use a 4 man crew to get this done. The $3500.00 seems about right for any tower crew that has experienced hands and the proper insurance/tools. Remember - you hire a cheap crew - you are in for cheap work and a crappy job.

Is a non-profit, a religious station that runs on donations. So far, we have 2 prices for doing a standard tower inspection of about a 200 foot tower, and I don't know if this includes tensioning guys, etc. But the price is about $3500. I don't believe they can actually pay that out. Can someone point me to a list or some resource that can point me to tower teams in eastern WA or OR, that might not be quite this much? If they can't do that, it really puts a wrinkle in my plans to put stuff on their tower, as I won't put anything on it, nor can I get a climber to put stuff on it, unless the work is done in the first place. Any references would be appreciated.
