    A certain % to the total to account for misc. items? Like Truck, Mower, Wear & Tear? I was thinking of adding 10% to total estimates to cover maintenance expenses. Do you think this is a good idea?

    Mechanic shops do it but I don't think it's professional. Customers don't wanna hear about this and that. They want a flat price for your services. Just factor it into your estimate
