pricing

Before I start putting out bids, I don't want to bid too low. How do I study the pricing in the area? Does it require me to call around or how would that work?

Hi jsfrk,

Here is a quote from TwinsLawnCare. Maybe it will be helpful.

"you may be a small company NOW with little to no overhead, but if you intend to grow, then you have to think big, and bill smart. regardless of how little you think your overhead is, it is probably more. Did you include all of these:

gas
equipment repairs
equipment replacement
equipment upgrades
advertising costs
insurance costs
vehicle
vehicle insurance
vehicle repairs
taxes
time

bottom line is, there is a basis to bill on, and without knowing how much yours is makes it hard to know if you are charging accordingly.

don't sell yourself short is all I am saying. You are in the business to be successful, so make sure to ensure that."
