Leaf Removal Help!!!

I have a customer that has 2 acres of leaves she needs removed. She has blown the leaves into 22 piles that measure about 15x30 - 12 inches deep. How would I start to figure what I would charge to remove these leaves. Hope someone can give me a general idea, I was thinking about $135 per pile.

Can you drive on the lawn? If you can, Sub it out. Get a guy with the biggest truck and leaf loader you can find and ask how much. Add on 25% or whatever and go home makeing a day or two pay by making a few phone calls.
