Im preparing for next spring, and am trying to be more consistent with my pricing. My question is how do you quote for lawn cutting contracts? Is there a % mark-up, after all direct costs are factored? Im having trouble finding out exactly what my COST is? I pay my two employees $10 each an hour =$20/hr ?Labour. But How would I get a dollar figure for my: -1990 Chev ¾ Ton, 2 wheel drive -2005 Gravely Promaster210, -2 Commercial Self-Propelled -2 FS85 Stihl Trimmers (3 years old) -1 BR400 Stihl Blower -14 Tandem Electric Brakes Trailer -Fuel/hr What do you think my cost, would be per hour, obviously $20(labour) + how much more for equipment? And then what type of mark-up?
