I repair computers part time, usually charge like $30 USD an hour or a flat rate depending on what I do. You just need to figure out whats best for you and your clients.

I worked at a shop that charged like $110 for fresh installs of Windows and another $40 for data backup. Most component rates were about double what they could get them for. I think the rates you listed are very low but I also haven't been in the UK PC game in a while.
