Hey Guys just starting out on my own. I bought an existing company and offer many new services, including spring clean-up. As I have been out of the biz for a few years I was wondering what a fair clean-up price was. Right now I cahrge for two cuts, but I feel as though I am ripping myself off. D.C. area

Well it kinda depends on what all your clean-ups include.

If your working the upper northwest area your are!!!!!

There are tons of leaves and debris in that area I would try to get at least 75hour for 2 ,plus disposal if there's a lot.

What area are you working?

When you say try to get 75 dollars an hour for two, do you mean you charge by the hour or do you price the job so you get 75 an hour for two? Thanks for any info.

Price the job so you can get 75hour for 2.

this what I would suggest that has always worked for me to keep up with the current rates. Do a search, and write down the figures. Add them up, divide by the number to get the average price. Also you need to know your overhead costs per hour and how much you want to make.
