2 sod estimates - how to bid?

I researched here and found I can buy a pallet of st augustine grass (500 sq ft) for $135 delivered.

I have 2 estimates to give for new sod installs...

1st is 1450 sq ft and the other is 1100 sq ft.

How do I estimate this with a profit for me and a laborer?

The sod farm where I used to work bid these small jobs at double the cost of the sod, but I would bid it at triple, especially the small jobs.
