Not yet, gonna wait til after the first of the year and meet up someplace, any thoughts?
I'm curious to see how you guys come up with a price in regards to curbside leaf pick ups. I haven't done alot of them, but want to do more of them this year, but I want the pricing to be spot on. I have a couple places I can dump for free, and the rest up in the northern part of the state I dump at the landfill for $20.00 a load.
I'm not looking for your prices, just a formula to make sure I have everything covered, ex:
time to suck up pile x dumping fee x mileage = price?
im also curious.i almost bought a leafvac this year. will definitely
have one next fall.
Does anybody from Rhode Island still use this thread?
Does Charlestown count!
haha of course! I just moved out of Charlestown. I lived on Biscuit City Rd. for a while. Just moved to West Greenwich. I own Lawns by Steve. Yourself, Ralph?
Well, I just added organic to my name, so its Ralph's Organic Yard Care. I have lived here for 32 years - have been working for 2 years full time and 5 parttime.
awesome. I myself started the business 4 years ago. Only spread my business through word of mouth, so I haven't grown too big and I'm pretty spread out everywhere in RI. This winter and next year however I want to focus on growing.
My personal email is email@example.com. I just dumped a dozen customers this past spring and summer to really focus on my core business which is total yard care.
so were the accounts that you dumped too far away? Or were they customers that didn't want a complete package and only wanted yard mowed?
