Your customers should never know your hourly rates.
And why is that? If they ask me how much for an hourly job, what would I say? I believe that its the customers right to know how much I am going to charge them. I hate hidden fees.
Your only bringing in 18-19k a year after expenses, right? You can't live off that. If you're having a tough time getting a price then maybe you should refocus your target market.
Fiscal year 2011 I brought in a net $80,000. I take care of a lot of HOA's etc. I dont usually bid out price by the hour unless it's a clean up etc. But $27 is getting too cheap to charge. what does everyone else charge per hour?
A net of 80k, you are a solo operator and you charge 27 PMH? I think I just broke my calculator trying to figure that one out.
I was waiting for someone else to post. I'm a bit confused as well.
haha i hardly charge anything by the hour, but when I do, thats what I charge. and WHEN NEEDED I have about three people that help out, but thats maybe once or twice a week. But Im not looking for opinions on my status, im curios on what everyone is charging for man hours, etc.
2080 X 27 = 56K
Then you pay for truck, equipment and gas, repairs, insurance...... and some time billing and maintenance of equipment. Living the high life.
