So I've gotten several calls thanks to google and yahoo local searches in my area and have had luck getting some good customers. I also get the calls from people whose yard is 2 foot tall and want it cut down and dont want regular service afterward. The question i have is would it be better to tell these folks i don't have the equipment to do such a heavy clean up or to charge a crazy amount so if i get the job it's gonna be worth it.

Dont do one time work even at premium rate not worth the wear on equipment

If the alternative is sitting home waiting for the phone to ring - take the job. Just charge a fair price for the extra work.

Take the work if you have the time, as said before. Simply factor in what the wear and tear will be. If mowing, assume you will ruin a blade and factor the price of that into your quote. Explain this to the customer as well. I don't have a full mowing schedule so I'm in the same boat. I call them "jungle renovations." They're worth it if you can convince the customer why it's worth as much as you need to charge.

how do you link to google, and can you do it for free?
