Pricing

How much would you charge to move 12 five foot shrubs to another part of a yard...

new but I'll help..

I am very new to the business, but I have been doing lots of research on the same sort of thing. The best thing it sounds like around here is to base your pricing off of the time it will take to complete the whole job. (Travel, and dump included)
Depending on the size of the shrubs, and the amount of labor it will take, the job can vary by hundreds of dollars.
Maybe you can list approximate size and more people can lend a hand.
Sounding like they are about 3 feet tall, I would take a stab at this job taking about 6-8 hours, I would price it around $350-$400. (this would be for me, a new guy. Others may get the job done in half the time with their experience) I would also be hesitant and cover yourself about the bushes handling the transplant. Meaning if they die in a year, are you responsible?

I am very new at this though, and do not have the experience of a lot of these guys on here. They are very helpful, you may want to list this post in the landscaping forum in the general section, it will get viewed more.

Pictures will help a lot too, people can see what they are bidding on then.
Good luck

sorry, brain lapse

Re-reading your original post, I see you did list 12 5 foot shrubs. Not much sleep last night, sorry.

Looks like about 12 hours of work, I'd say around $700.

This all depends on the root structures also. it could be too much to ask these shrubs to survive after being hacked out. May need to spend a good amount of time on them.

Can you describe the shrubs and where they are now and where they are going?
