    I guess I don't really know what to charge them for cleaning and bagging leaves up. Some say $60/hr others less than that. Well, do I tell the customer that I charge $60/hr. Or would I say, by looking at it, it will probably take me 2 hours so I will quote them $120. I don't know need some help.

    I wouldn't say how much per hour or else they'd freak out...just tell them how much total.

    I would quote it by job. To give you an idea I get between $150 and $350 per cleanup

    we also NEVER give them a man-hour rate. If its a cleanup and I can't be sure on howlong it will take, I give them a low to high, range of cost. Have rarely had a problem doing it this way
