The way I bid my accounts is hourly.. I get an estimate in my head of how long it would take me ang another crew mwber to do the job.... 60 dollars an hour figure the rest out...does not include drive time

25 min round up to 30 never drop gate for less then 25 dollars

My example.
$20 stop fee +$1 per thou sq. ft.
To bag it, $20 stop fee and $2 per thou.
With the right equipment.
My fee per thou gos up with the level of difficulty.

Good luck man.
