So, what to include in the base price and what is extra and how much to charge? I want to maintain a competitive price without low balling the competition and I don't want to diminish the standard pricing in my area.
Some things are flat out wags. You have to learn production rates for various jobs. Charles Vander Kooi
has some good books on this subject and even a small book with many production rates listed. Other people here will recommend other books. They are a good starting spot but you will find that your own experiance will trumpt these.
