i have heard something like 6 bucks a strand.
Do you charge the minimum to put them up and then again to take them down or one price includes both?
I don't measure how many strands the guys can put or take down per hour. I don't really care because I am billing hourly (I would care if I felt they were working especially slow, but they aren't). Most clients of ours are little old ladies who just want their own icicle lights hung on the front of the house an perhaps around the front door or a small tree. Some companies do charge by the strand. Call your lighting supplier for help on this. Yes, the minimum is for both up and down (for us they come down twice as fast as they go up).
