church pricing

I am wanting to bid on a church. It is 2.5 acres, with church and gravel drive way. So roughly 2 acres, with 2 light poles and a sign to trim around. Gravel drive so no edgeing, so I am thinking about an hour and a half total.

I am thinking $90 for weekly service
$120 bi-weekly

Does this sound close, I really want to get it because its in a great spot to advertise, and may open doors to other places.

Churches are generally wanting the lowest price. If no one else is bidding on it, I would say you are spot on from what you are describing. I would get the two rates a little closer to each other as the average Joe doesn't understand the extra work, wear & tear on equipment bi-weekly puts on you.

If no one else is bidding....that could....SHOULD be a sign....just saying. Been there. Done that. Churches are a pain. Want it done for nothing. Someone else is always looking to do it cheaper. No thanks. Move on.

If your a member of this church or have family members that belong to the church, DO NOT BID ON THIS PROJECT. It will only cause you more problems than you can shake a stick at. I believe your pricing is fair, don't give in and lower it because you feel sorry.
Feeling sorry will not pay your bills, and I am sure tat if the paster or priest could do it them self's they could or would.
