    I need a lil help deciding how to charge for leaf removal. I have a 18hp giant vac mounted on the tounge of my trailer, a 10hp wheeled giant vac blower, 2 backpack blowers and a cub cadet walk behind vac. I am going to offer curbside cleanups and complete lawn cleanups but im just not sure where to start on pricing. hourly? by the lot size? by # of trees? HELP...
    Thanks, Matt

    charge by the hour and include the time it takes to haul and dump the leaves. That's the fairest way for you and the customer. Some lots can be small and still take a long time, so by lot size doesn't work. do a search too, its been discussed quite a bit
