    I have a customer who has several large limbs in the rear of property that were caused by a storm. They will have to be cut up and hauled off. Probably atleast one truck load. I have no idea what to charge.... any insights would be helpful.

    Charge by the hour and give her an estimated hour as to how long this process will take. also charge for a dumping fee and include gas in this. Take the limbs home and burn them and profit off the dump fee if this is allowed in your area.

    I have a days worth of this same thing coming up. I am charging $550.
    This is how I came up with it:
    $60 per hour times 8 hours = $480
    Estimated dump fees and gas to get there to be about $70.
    480 plus 70 = $550
