View Full Version : Fall clean up help

01-06-2010, 08:05 PM
I am wondering how much to charge on one of my fall clean ups. I have a john deere 210 and a trac vac. All I have to do is vac up all the leaves and dump them along the woods. No hauling involved. The customer provides the gas and pay in cash. I am wondering what I should be chargeing an hour.

make sure you are charging enough to cover all your overhead costs and make profit as well

Yeah, with that small amount of equipment (and no gas) you could make more money when charging $10 an hour than a person with 2 b 600's, 2 ztr's, leaf loader, etc. and charging $50 an hour.

Just charge enough to cover your overhead (equipment, transportation, etc. costs) and also get enough profit out of it to make it worth your time.

Hope this helps, and Welcome to Lawnsite!
