I have been running a lawn care/landscape business for several years now and several of our customers are asking about parking lot restriping. I have the equiptment to do it. I was just wondering what others were charging per liner foot. Thanks for the help

We price our work on the market conditions and our material / job costs.
:nono:
It makes no difference what anybody else charges if charging that would leave you broke. Because you may not have as good a deal on paint or be as fast or be paying more for insurance or have a new truck or whatever. Or it may be the opposite and you can operate less expensively and still make a good margin.

Hope this helps, more then me telling you my rate. (.36 per L FT for restripes) :rolleyes:

To start out would you guys recommend buying just aerosol or bulk paint and gas powered line striper unit?

You want to go with a gas air, or air-less sprayers. The aerosol is to mush money, and won't last well. Check for used equipment, classified, auctions, etc, to get started.
