Im busy with questions but I appreciate the responses. I'm going to buy me a Measuring wheel to figure out what to charge my clients. The problem is i'm clueless. In the past I would look at the grassy area and guess at a quote. Once I did it a couple of times I realized that I cheated myself. So, say I measure an account at 2acres do I charge by the acre? or Do I use a formula that says my mower travels at X miles per hour and can handle 2 acres in X amount of time and charge a dollor amount for that time? I'm sure there are many ways to fiqure out a price but if I come up with my own I dont want to cheat myself and I want to always be consistent. I want to look professional when dealing with prospective clients to give them the since that I am not a fly by night company. One guy I met with wanted to know how I came up with my quote and he almost made me look stupid until I thought of a witty way of explaining my process. Please help.
