What would you charge? Are you charging $150.00?

$112 is your cost just for product, what about drive time, load time, fuel, payroll, wear & tear, and everything else, what is left for your businesses final profit to pay for that equipment?

I would be around $275.00 at least.

I would be charging close to 250 for 44000 sq. ft anyway, and probably up that to 300 for merit. Dave
