I'm lucky enough to not have to bid the majority of my work as its for existing customers and they just tell me to do it. I don't sell myself short and can be as thorough as necessary without worrying about a time frame. When I do have to give prices I usually try to give them a broad ballpark price as in $100-200 for example. Most customers are more than fine with this and really just want a rough price range so they know what to expect. As long as the work shows for itself the price isn't a Huge deal as you get what you pay for
I never do a range.... Always an exact price. Hourly rate (40) times estimated number of hours. Only do a dump fee if it's more than a few yards of material.
