how to lean your homeowners to a contract.

What ????????

Pricing;
Depends on size of lot, how much trimming, ease of access, etc.

The $35.00 figure you mention, MIGHT be a good 'normal' target to shoot for.

Depends greatly on the economics in the particular area your bidding in. Not just what town, but in some cases the economics of a particular neighborhood.

Reality check for what price YOU are going to charge.
Don't start out trying to decide how much you CAN charge.
FIRST, figure out a very real COST of your doing a job.
Please don't think -I'll spend about $2.00 in gas, so I'll make X.-
Live and work real. On this site, check for a thread by Eric Elm, "Tips for beginners" or something like that.

Check 'store' on this site for contracts and other forms. Also do some searches here for 'contract(s)'.
