My next door neighbor hired me to do a job. As a matter of fact I just finished it. I moved a pile of dirt from the back yard and spread it all around the perimeter of the house. I originally quoted them $25 bucks an hour. They were a little reluctant but agreed. Heres the curve ball. I subcontracted a buddy of mine with his tractor/ bucket to move the dirt wile I used a wheel barrel as well. He also help me rake it out and did some roto-tilling. I paid him $25 bucks an hour. I plan on charging the neighbor $25 dollars a man hour. If it were just me, it would have taken double the time. I'm wondering if I should have explained this to them before I started the job. I have a feeling I'm only going to get half the money I'm expecting. Any inputs?
