This would probably be better answered in the "Starting" forum.

65" x 20"? I guess $30 as that's my minimum. If I had something next door I'd do it for $15 per week though.

Now if you were talking 65 FEET, not inches like was typed it would be more.

65'' by 20'': that's like 9 sq. ft. LOL

Ya, I think I would charge about $20 if I had something close by. $25 is not unreasonable anyways.

Fuel, that's it???

How about equipment maintenance, insurance, phone, payroll, etc. You really need to find this out before you can start pricing.

think about it no matter how small the property you still have to factor in the drive time there, my minimum is $35
