I suppose it matters the time of year? If it's January and they're slow then there's no real pain inflicted if they're not busy.

If they're slammed and they have to pause a repair to wait on you then yeah, time is money.

I am an accountant - starting to remember all my cost accounting coursework now....

Overall, I like your approach.
