Extra charge to clear Poison??

Plain and simple I hate poison, ivy sumac, plain poison, I get it badly and so does my help

Customer called for a quote to clear .5 acre of low growth saplings, high grass etc.

Well it was rampant with poison. I flat out told him I strongly dislike working in the poison

I told him that it would be 1500 to clear if it were not with poison, but since it was everywhere it would be a total of 2,000

I don't think he liked it, any comments or thoughts about poison and adding a premium?

Matt

same here, i would spray it first, then cut grass 3 weeks or so later, or just turn down the job. It eats me up, so I avoid it at all cost.

Matt, you are your own boss. Your thread reads like you don't want to do this job because of poison ivy.
If that is the case why would you even bother giving the customer a quote for a job you don't want to do?
