This one is for you guys in lower MI and some surrounding states. I purchased an used Bluebird 424 aerator this year and didn't get a chance to use it on any of my customers lawns yet. I sent out a survey with my final billing that asked if any of my customers would be intrested in this service next year. I was suprised to find out that almost fifteen people would be intrested. The problen is that I don't really know where to set my prices. My expenses are low and I do not want to be a so called " lowballer " so I figure I can keep my prices in set with everyone elses. The machine still set me back a pretty penny so I would like to make back my investment this coming year . The properties I will be using them on are approx 10 to 15 thousand sq feet and my investigation shows others charging anywhere from 30 to over 50 dollers a pop. Would you agree that my prices should be somewhere in that region? thanks for all of your help!
