I am soooo tired of giving estimates to people, wasting my time and fuel and just annoying me to no end! I gave 3 estimates yesterday to people in a nicer location, 250k homes. One estimate was for $37.00/week for mowing about a 3/4 acre lot, trimming and I threw in a free edging of driveway every 3rd week. She looked at the estimate sheet and the first thing she said was "WOW, I didn't think it would cost that much" I told her the usuall shpeal about the amount of work etc. The second was about the same, with the same reaction. The third was a spring clean up and 12yrd's of mulch delivered and spread, cutting new edges around flower beds,(about 200ft total) Her price was $675.00. Her reaction was "Oh my gosh I never thought it would be that much", then I snapped I asked her how much she thought it would have cost her she said "well I don't know maybe a couple hundred dollars". I said to her well the I guess you would be out of business in a season. I asked her if she realized the amount of work involved, BLA BLA BLA. This season I have bid to the extent of almost becoming a lowballer and no luck.
