Shrub/tree removal and grading question

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a customer that wants some work done. Here are the numbers.

He needs 4 flower beds reclaimed.

1. 15' x 5' with overgrowth and one small tree (3 in diameter) needs removal
2. 24' x 5' with overgrowth
3. 21' x 5' with overgrowth 2 Arbos (15') and 9(5' x 6') Chinese Variegated Privets need removal
4. 10' x 3' with overgrowth

Grading

There are three areas where the customer needs to add top soil

1. 24' x 15' x 4" with two bushes requiring removal
2. 21' x 45' x 4" with two magnolia tree (12') requiring removal.
3. 29' x 10' x 6"

He also wants 48' of 4' chain link fence removed as well. The fence posts (9)are in concrete.

I will remove the bushes, trees, and fence using truck, chain and winch. Then haul them off. I will have dirt delivered (22 yds.) and will spread and level with our tractor. What would be your best "guess"timate on this job. I have it like this

1. $150 dump fees and removal from site
2. $130 tree removal
3. $315 bush removal
4. $140 bed cleanup and weed removal
5. $600 dirt delivery and spread
6. $200 for fence removal

Totaling $1535. Does this look and sound about right?
