Thinking about buying some Spools of lights & deco, for the christmas holiday.
Has any one done any Christmas decorations, ie: hanging lights, etc.
If so please advise on how to bid these types of jobs.
using bulk spools and lights, I charge 6.50 per foot sold, installed, taken down and I store at my warehouse the 1st year. includes everything. the 2nd year cost is half that for installed, taken down, and stored.
we do 6.50 per foot first year, 3.25 per foot 2nd and 3rd year, etc. service calls are included first 3 years, and all broken and burned out bulbs are included at time of install. service calls in year 4, 5, 6, etc, are $85 for first 30 minutes for 2 guys. all our per foot charges include install, takedown, storage at our facility, cords, clips, timers, everything. the c-9 cord should give you a 20 year life if put up after Oct. 1st and taken down before Feb. 1st. good bulbs should last aprox 3000 hours, but we break alot at install and takedown. Don't buy c-9 cord from Action Lighting, the sockets fail alot even in first year.
