You don't need the blue book .You have to adjust your prices for your area.Use common sense.You can see on this site .Some people are increasing the part list price and our cheaper on the labor.Some charge a trip charge plus parts and labor.Just find something and go with it.With the cost of business ,gas prices,parts insurance. Your labor is too cheap.Charge labor and a trip charge and more than list for the part you are putting in.But don't go crazy with the part price over list.My opinion.

I get a discount on parts. For example a dishwasher pump motor assembly is about,$134 but  I pay 98 and charge retail for the part.

But your right Im starting to notice that no matter how low you quote the job there's always sticker shock.

Also as you see there is not much of difference between list and our cost on some parts and those parts you need to charge a little more for the parts.You had to go to the parts store to pick it up or as in my case i order it and had to sent to me.The cost of shipping maybe involve.Some parts already have a low wholesale price and a very high list price.No need to charge more for the part.Good luck.
