How do you do pricing for this service? Is it by the hour or just what you think the job will cost overall? Also, how often do you go to the properties? Once a week or every other week? First time offering this service so any help would be appreciated.

Todd,

I go by the hour. Rates depend on your area. I try to go by them at least one week. Sometimes get a little backed up but that is just because of the season and amount of time it takes to do leaves.

I never price by the hour. More efficient equipment/better employees should benefit me, not the customer.

Pricing by the hour works for me and I don't think it benefits the customers. Everyone runs their business differently and any idea helps. So please feel free to give some other advice as well. I am here to learn and continue to grow in the business.

Thanks,
