I have had my own business now since March 2015 and I am still getting stuck getting my quotes right at times. The tricky ones are the over grown lawns and knowing a fair way to price it.
I seem to not get the price right, I usually look at the sized of the area, thickness of the growth and double what I would normally charge. Then when I come to doing the job, im slogging my guts out and carting the clippings away shaking my head.
I am thinking of making a check list for quotes with reminders what to look for, so I can get a fairer quote for me. Anyone else do the same ? Anyone have a Clippings minimum removal charge, if so, do you base it on your min hourly rate ?
I guess we all can't get every job, and some people just want it done for nothing.
