The Jiffy Rate excludes any materials required by the Home Service Professional to complete the Home Service. You acknowledge and agree that the cost of materials will be in addition to the respective Jiffy Rate. We reserve the right to modify or update the Jiffy Rates at any time and in our sole discretion. When submitting a Request for a particular category of Home Service, we may provide you with the Jiffy Rate, but are under no obligation to do so and you hereby agree that it is your responsibility to remain informed about the current Jiffy Rates for the category of Home Service at the time requested.
