I have yards similar in size that take anywhere from 10 minutes to 45 minutes to service, so I don't see how anyone can price correctly from aerial maps.
I mostly do it when pressed but I don't care about price shoppers that much anyway so I will just to get them off the phone and not waste my time. I would dare say I am near 100% of getting the people that I go visit and next to nothing on those phone quotes.

I am close to 50% on my commercial "bids" too
