I get quite a bit of work through a few property management companies, and recently one passed along to me a fairly long list of rental properties that needed their irrigation systems started up. These properties are scattered all around town, and since many havent been maintained, Ive had to do quite a bit of additional though fairly simple work. Im not positive on how I should approach charging for all of this. Im assuming that most use a minimum set price for turning each system on and doing fine adjustments. Im also assuming that materials are an added expense to that amount, but Im a bit unclear about what would be considered extra labor. Some places I can turn on the system, dig up and replace a head, and be out in fifteen minutes, but in other places it may take close to an hour just to walk the property and to decipher what in the world is going on. So where do you draw the line? Also, if a property management company gives you a number of jobs, do you offer a discount even though its the landlords that ultimately are the ones who are paying for the service and not that of the property management company?
