First thing, how much do you want to make an hour. Figure up your op costs and then add what profit is acceptable to you. Then just take everything one step at a time. Calculate how much time you think each task will take and add that up. After multiplying it by the hourly cost I usually add in a little more to help cover if anything unexpected happens. Dont forget to charge for the dump fees and so on. Good luck.
