The best advice I can give is that you don't want to be the low bidder every time. You will not make any money. If you are getting more than 50% of the ones you bid, I would say you are probably getting close to bidding too low.

As long as you know what your costs are, and they will be covered, including addressing any "unforseens", then you will be fine.

No one here can tell you what you should be charging, only how you should go about developing your bid. Our overhead will be different than yours, plus our material cost will be different too. Some may give prices, but look at that only as an example, and only as an example if they tell you how they came to that number.
