I charge by the fixture, it works for me. I get 275 to 350 per fixture. I find it takes less time for the bidding process and it also gives the client the tools to figure out what the costs are. It especially works when I am doing jobs in phases. There are some jobs that use more or less wire, etc. but it seems to even out well. I also don't have as big a fluxuation in property sizes that some have outside of CA. I do bid a lttle differently on the 200-300 fixture jobs.

My competitors charge 185-225 per fixture, but they still think it is all about the fixtures. For me it is all about the results.

If you are selling aluminum lights for $275 a pop average then with all the lighting you claim to do you must wear gold underwear. In other words you must be making bank. Good for you. In a coupla yrs you can hit em again for replacements when the aluminum falls apart. Excellent marketing strategy. Planned obsolescence . You are much smarter than you look.

What's wrong with selling at a per fixture cost? Just put it at $400 per light, and you should be covered in most situations. If you are going to use brass, however, I would go a bit higher.......

Whew!... I was starting to worry that you were slipping over to the Dark Side for a while Chris.
