I am working on a new spread sheet to help me figure my bids for fall clean-ups (gates, sq. ft. of yards, obsticles, and walking distances). The problem I have is what customers are willing to pay for raking and leaf disposal? I have a backpack blower and a hand held blow and vac (both Echo) tarps, truck & trailer(6x12) etc... I've seen posts where some guys out there charge no less than $200.00 per yard. What do you think you could do in an hour with my equipment on a 10,000 sq. ft. lot based on 1 person with average leaf fall? If I could get a figure on how much 1 person could do then I could add my overhead. I've done several searches and nothing comes close to what I need. Any input would be great.
