For multi-crew owners or managers only

I'm wanting to get an idea as to what kind of NET your crews are bringing each year. Preferably full landscape maintenance operations running 3-4 guys per crew. I understand that 3 or 4 guys is a large difference in man hours, still wanting to get an idea.

You might gross 1,200 in a day and pay two of your sorta works a 100 bucks a piece and 100 bucks for fuel to claim your making 900 net but your not.

I could list off no less then 200 other things that are costing you money to provide that service....everything from the big wear and tear on equipment all the way down to that 43 cent stamp on a envelope to the 8 cent envelope/invoice paper package.


Your living in dream land.

39 percent is MUCH more realistic than 70-90 percent. 39 percent is very very good for a large company.

All of our welding painting and repairs are done in house about 95 percent of the time . We paint our trucks and trailers oursekves and do all fabrication in house this helps keep cost down . We send out the trucks to get lettered afyer we paint them . There is a lot of expense when running that many trucks per day. We just switched over to fuso cabovers which helps reduce trailer maintenance
