    What would you rent your leaf set-up for?
    I am done for the year and have interest in a company renting my set-up to do their customers
    I have a 7x14 dump with 8ft sides holding a 10hp 8" vac.

    I would say anywhere between $100 - $150 a day, and they pay for gas. Never rented any of my equipment before though.

    I wouldn't rent out my equipment. I would tell you to act as a sub for the curbside pick up for the other company.

    ditto...renting is another ballgame. I bet you if something severe happened your insurance would drop you like a bad habit.

    I agree with above poster, sub yourself out. Personally, I would want to get between $50 and $60 per hour (minimum four hours) including travel time plus any equipment "rental fees" and a mileage fee.

    I offer leaf pickup to other landscape companies. They do the cleanup and I do the curbside pickup. I charge $60/hr from arrival onsite to dumping.
