Well I had this customer call me this afternoon and asked me how much it would cost him to do a leaf cleanup. I asked him what did the other bidders put in. One of them said 350 an hour. How Ridiculas is that. Well i got it and im happy. If anyone has this same problem post it

The amount per hour you can charge depends on the equipment you have. When estimating a leaf cleanup each property is different. The amount of leaves will vary so you must estimate how long the job will take or just tell them a per hour price. Most of the customers we deal with want a price for the job.

The 350.00 an hour sounds odd ,are you sure it was'nt for the hole 1 acre job? What did you bid it for an acre of leaves is alot:laugh: :laugh:

If the LCO has seven people working and lots of equip it's a good deal.
