    When bidding cleanups what is resonable? I recently did a job for $500, which took 15 hours. Is that reasonable?

    Sounds good to me also...
    I usually charge $35 per hour $50.00 per truck load to the dump.You can look at a site and figure out the time limit.
    My last job took 3 hrs I made $295.00..

    Ron, how did that work? Even with 2 trips to the dump ($100) that comes out to $65 per hour. Did you just give them a price on it w/out billing hourly? I've been thinking of restructuring my clean-up pricing lately, so this interests me. I've been just charging $35 per hour w/a $35 stop fee, one hour minimum.

    Well when I usually do a clean up job I use my 6 half ft by 16 ft trailer. this counts as two truck loads at $100.00 per load plus $35.00 per hour for work labor This works great for me with no problems. Heck last year I did a nice job for one of my clients and made $1,650.00 in 9 hours work .....
