I will not work for free but i woud hate to see if and of my customers went elsewhere for fall cleanups.

So i guess the question here is what are you guys charging per man hour for fall cleanups??
In my area there is a lot of competition from individuals who do not pay taxes. We are only able to charge 35-40 per man hour here. Depending on the person i will either give a price or charge 35-40 per man hour until the job is done. I also charge a leaf disposal fee for getting rid of the leaves. If someone wants me to give a fixed price i will bid on the high end to make sure that i make a profit. Leaf cleanup can be very time consuming and it is easy to misjudge the time it will take.
