    It all depends on your overhead there isnt one set price that everyone uses.( example) I Have one employee that is paid $10.00 per hour and myself My rate would be $40.00 per hour that includes using my equitment and $30.00 for hauling debre in truck.

    Well, I am close to you in Hunterdon County and I will tell you that last Fall, we billed at $75 per man hour for every job no matter what we were doing.

    The year before we were at $65 an hour and the modest increase this year was barely noticed.
  5. 75 a hour and deposal fees

    Depends on your capabilities, and setup. The companies charging $60. an up per man hr., are well set up for leaf removal. It will take these companies alot less time than your average. Charge hourly, and accordingly. This season we were getting between $60-$75 per man hr, plus dumping fees. :cool:

    when you all say x dollars per hour per man.. do you also charge for yourself, or your payment is in the diff from there rate and your x amount an hour per man?

    For leaf cleanups we charge $1.25/min for a 2 man crew, id say most lawns ave. about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. to cleanup. but that is just an ave 8000-12000 sqft lawn, depends on the trees and beds as well.
