Do the financial analysis on the job as best you can. How much will the unit(s) cost you? How much does that figure to per month? How much is a labor hour to you? Gas, etc?Narrow all that down to a per hour cost to run your business and then take a thorough look through the property. I mean really walk through it. Now you can estimate what it will take to get the job done and how it fits into your schedule. Then adjust those financial calcs to crank out a number that works for your business (and add margin). There is your bid price. If it's too high? That's fine - no reason to lowball and lose money. I'm more of a risk taker myself, so I would encourage you to put some work into it and give it a try, but that's just my opinion.
