Functionality of the base price example:
If you set the base price at $100 for 2 men.
This means that for the first 3 hours (your minimum) it will charge a FLAT RATE of $100 instead if $85/hr.
Once the 3 hour minimum has exceeded it will THEN begin to charge per hour at the hourly rate of $85/hr. This is added ON TOP of the base price (flat price) of $100.
So, say it is a 4 hours job.
The first 3 hours will be $100. Then for 1 hour it will be $85. So a total of $185.
