In reading a post eairler about cutting down a small tree, it was said that the tree would take 20 minutes to cut down. Another reply said that 20 minutes would not be enough time to drive, setup, and make that first cut. This got me to thinking. We all have a certian amount of "overhead" built into our price for each job. I mean, for each job, it takes time to travel, unload, bill, chat with customer... For each job you do, this is built into your price. Getting to my question, do you guys discount this overhead charge for jobs when you are already onsite to mow or do other maintenance tasks? In the case of the tree, it will be more efficent to do the job when you are onsite to mow, taking less total time than if it were to be done on a seperate trip. Do you guys give a lower price if you can do the job that way? One think that has me thinking is when I go to the dentist. If I am getting one filling, it is about $75. If I get three fillings in the same visit, it is $75 x 3. Now, isn't half the time involved getting me in the chair, getting me numbed up, getting his tools in order, cleaning up, billing... If I were to get the three fillings in three seperate trips, the cost to me would be the same, but the time the dentist spends working on me would be higher. It takes say 30 minutes to do one filling, and maybe 50 minutes to do all three. If I went in three seperate trips, it could take 90 minutes of the dentists time. So, my question, do you guys discount for mutiple services done in one trip?
