No way no how would you. You probably wouldn't even show up for the estimate, cause you have a minimum right. Most guys with bucket trucks won't show up for less than a couple hundred bucks. And if you think anyone is gonna pay a couple hundred bucks for a job worth $150, your crazy. Yes I realize a few will but the majority won't. Which is why your target customer isn't someone with a few trees, it's customers with several hundred trees. Apples to oranges comparison!!

That's why I said it is bc he did 750 of them. Of course I'm not going to show up for 4 trees at those prices....
