I hate it when a prospect get's your flyer calls you, tells you what they are looking for. After you have driven to their property and given them an estimate they say OH never mind it is too much. Two examples: Two different neighboors wanted the same thing done. They both have a portion of their backyard that is dirt rock and tall weeds. I gave them both a estimate. Honestly guys I think I did not charge enough based on what I have seen on this site. I would have had to (Clear the Weeds, Remove the Debri, Till the dirt, Rake, Plant Seed and Fertilizer and lay straw) I admit the area was not extremely large but neither estimate came over $325. My labor was only $200. The rest were equipment rental charges, and material expenses. It pisses me off after I sit down and do an estimate print it out using my damn ink which ran out. (The cartriges are $17.99 and that is just for the black ink) Then they tell you owe it is too much. After I gave them a figure either above this or $50 dollars below. One ladies daughter had the audacity to get mad when I showed up with the estimate. They had just purchased a mower, the other her boyfriend said he would do it. But he had just screwed up her lawn with a horrible cut. I know I ranted, but I had to get it off my chest.
