1)Hourly rates for weedeating.
2)Estimating weedeating jobs.
only you can answer that Q......
Yep, find out what you want to make per hour, factor in gas and oil expenses. . . and there you have it.
Thanks for the astout insight. Its fairly predictable with a quote like you have posted.
Come on now, sarcasm isn't gonna help anything.
How about if I told you I try to make anywhere from $50 to $75/hour and up? I've never bid a weedeating-only job, so I wouldn't know re: that specifically.
Oh, and I give free estimates. I think most lco's do. Was that what you were asking?
This is just a thought. In your head, price the whole job...mow, trim, edge, blow, etc. Then, how much would you charge to mow only. Subtract and whatever is left is a reasonable fee for your time trimming (and only trimming)the property.
I have a few customers that want weedeating and edging only for 1/4 acre lots and I charge them $20....it takes me about 15 min.
the question is how long is it going take? I know it's not the same but I had a next door neighbor ask me to take care of her overgrown edges. took me 10 mins and I charged her 20.
I come from a area not too far from you and I get 70 per hour. Sometimes more because of all the steep banks here. I run a stihl 110 but like something lighter on slopes. Some of my jobs are all trimming and I need to get paid for that. Can make easier money mowing so charge more!
for us here i charge $125.00 per man hour for " Weedeating "
