A good way to get other people to do repairs for you is to put them in your bazaar to be repaired and maybe spend an hour or so AFK near the repair guy. It's cheaper, you will get a better repair, and you are helping your fellow player out. I offer 2,000 gil for my rank ~20 gear, and never have a problem getting my stuff fixed.
To expand on this, I'll typically leave my game running when I go to school or work and leave my character logged in while seeking repairs to his items. So far, everything has always been repaired by the time I get back.
I also typically offer 2k gil for equipment that is Rank 20 and below, and 5k for things that are higher. Edited, Feb 13th 2011 4:14pm by WarkupoZ
