I am in the engineering business and looking for a word or term to use to describe our site calls, at present it reads as follows! "Labour Technician site charge including preparation & traveling time". I wish to insert a term or word after preparation meaning the opposite of preparation, namely to describe in one word everything the opposite of preparation, (this would be to describe things like packing all the tools used for the site job away, cleaning the tools, booking stock out finalizing etc.) The description would read as follows " Labour Technician site charge including preparation, traveling & ............. time". Thank you to anybody that will be able to assist me in promoting and using the most striking word or even better by giving me a complete new description of the following term that I am using now.
Thanx
Peter

How about:
  • Labour Technician site charge including preparation, traveling, cleanup, etc.

That should cover eveything. (I don't really think there is a word meaning the opposite of preparation, since preparation has no opposite (that I know of). )

Was thinking and came across the word "processing" which I think best describes the after work to be done. Thanks for your trouble. Better than this will be asking for too much or receiving a word better than this will be jackpot.
