I have a read a number of threads here on what people are charging. There has also been a number of threads on what people need to make to break even or show a profit. And I keep reading that there is enough work to go around but could you handle more.... So my question to you all is: At what number of accounts are you happy with? IN conjunction to that question - how many people working for you? At what $ amount are you profitable for the day? (gas exp, insurance, advertsing, equipment depre. etc) How many accounts can you really handle? Are you pushing hard now to mow everything in 1 day, 3 days, 6 days? At what point to do add another mower, trimmer, worker or entire crew to the operation? If your equipment is sitting idle for a day or 3 days, would you persue more accounts? in a given mowing day, what hours or how many hours are you runnen? Sorry about all the questions, but I think this should narrow done alot of peoples questions. I think some need to do there homework b/f starting a company. Not coming here on this sight asking how much to charge. At what % are we in the black or red. What to buy vs not to buy. I think if we can honestly answer some of these questions - maybe someone will think twice about rates, services offered and running a business?
