I never quote over the phone but I do tell most potential customers that my cleanups start at a minimum of $250. I then go survey the property to get a feel of how long and how much leaves will have to be removed.
Some properties are surrounded by woods so ill usually just blow most if not all the leaves back where they came from.
Some properties have little to know trees where I can just go over it with my Turf Tiger and easily suck everything up.
Then theres the properties from hell where I feel like I have to make 5 trips back and forth to the dump before were done.
Theres too many factors for anyone to telll you what to charge. Come up with a hourly rate and stick to it. I'm at roughly $100/hr but I dont tell my customers that, I simply give them a quote and stick with that.
