You really have to sell yourself and your company. Your appearance, knowledge, and expierance go a long way.

Greenguys makes many good points in his posts.

Why are you charging a fraction of what the hvac guy charges to come to your house?

Thanks...my opinions are from years of experience and yes...with lots of trial and error. I do like seeing the different numbers that people uae as their operating cost. Gas alone eats $4 per hour....my goal is to pay for a mower in 1500 hrs. I can go into a long spill on how to accurately figure your true operating cost. It gets into everything from blades..belts..oil..grease...filters..tires..and a little for the odd stuff....i can assure you.. if you calculate that...plus your insurance...it is more that $10 an hr.
