What do people around here try to get for their profit margin percentage on landscape installation? I've got a job a person is having me plant trees for and i'll need to use an auger. I dont want to bid to low and drive the market down, but i dont want to bid to high and not get the job. So people that service areas outside of virginia have told me they try to shoot for 80% unless its a builder then they'd get special pricing. Any information on what you guys try to aim for would be appreciated. Thanks!

Bought my last open trailer from them. Good people to deal with, but do call and check and make sure they haven't sold the trailer if your looking on there website. They take some time to update it.

The bravo trailer are well made. We are looking at picking up a 8.5 x20 with the landscaper package. Bravo trailers are made by the person who use to own pace american before they went out of business.

I am new to this forum. I have been in business since 2009 out in the Charlottesville area. I fell into the lawn service business, was doing REO maintenance which included grass cuts, and now just doing Lawn services. Anyways, I hope everyone is off to a great start.

If you don't mind me asking what did you pay for your homesteader. I compared a bravo star to a homesteader Hercules both landscape packages. With 5200 pound axles both 8.5x18. Bravo was 7599 and homesteader was 6500
