Not knowing your operating costs and overhead. Tough, even painful to figure out when you are just starting, but necessary if you are to avoid under-bidding and loosing money. That said, don't be afraid to make a mistake, generally one or two under-bids are not going to put you out of business and you learn a bunch. Has already been mentioned, but route density is a key in this business. If you have a tight route of properly priced customers you are doing it right.
