i cant believe i cant get even one of u people to bid on my "price quote" thread
Maybe there have been so many "What would you bid this job at?" threads lately that they tire of it. I glanced at it, I don't know what I'd bid. How much did you bid?
At this time of year, many of us are so busy quoting jobs for our own clients, there's not much energy left for non-productive estimating.
Don't feel bad, Bobby.
I asked a similar question a while back and just got mostly smart-azz rediculus answers.
If you want to get responses, post about what type of mower to buy, or mention "scrub" and you'll get several pages.
Fact is, probably most here don't know the answer to your question.
I don't think anyone is obligated to do your bid work but you.
I think the reason many people don't answer is because they are smart enough to know they don't know....
Alta says they don't know (but the way he's saying it implies incompetence, and he's wrong).....Without walking the property, how can you really tell?
Besides, everyone's equipment, overhead, expense, labor, etc.... is different.... why would someone else's price matter to you.
I thought you were in this business to make a profit.... what is the definition of scrub...why does it even matter.
sean, i was just curious as to what others are bidding. why should i care? as i stated elsewhere, bidding wars are tougher than ever this season. i wont lower my prices , but was just curious. u dont need to "walk the property". the measurements are there for u. the materials are there for u, everything u need is there for u. i was asking for a quote as if you had to do this job for a client, my expenses or overhead have nothing to do with it. thanks again folks
sean, another thing. what do u mean,"nobody is obligated to do your bids?". i dont get that statement. no body here is obligated to answer anybodys posts, but we do. some help, some add humor, whatever, but they get answered.
Hey, now wait a minute .......It's really impossible to give you fair quote. Look at it this way "Mr. NJ" , I live in Basking Ridge and what "I" can charge is totally different than "Mickleton" New Jersey, which is much lower in status. The guy's in Clinton and Far Hills, can get much more money per hour than in Somerville or "Route 9 in Woodbridge".
switch. pretend I AM THE CUSTOMER!!! I NEED THIS WORK DONE!! HOW MUCH IS IT??????? dont u have a price structure? do u have a "price per ton?" price for labor? bid the dam job, now u people are just tryin to act stupid and avoid bidding the job
