    Just bought a DL14 Billygoat I had some people ask if I would pick up their leaves out the front of their house if they put them out front for me and I really don’t know how much to charge any help would be helpful.

    When we had our vac depending on the amount, it was anywhere from 75.00 to 100.00 that covered our dump fees as well.

    The town I do most of my work in provides curbside pickup to those in city limits, unfortunately....

    $75-100 minimum. I asked one company for a price to grab a pile for me - told him it was 1/2 load max - he quoted it @ $175.

    my town does curbside pickup as well. but there is always the people who dont get them out till late or the leafs arent done falling when the city passes.. im thinking about buying a dump and a bg next year and trying to test the waters. idealy if you could put together a route just doing curbside pickup even in other towns i can see where you could make decent profit..

    We charge between 100-150 depending on the size, maybe more....Just remember if you do them rake the leaves to the hose don't run the hose in the pile. When someone else stacked the leaves you never know what's hidden underneath and you sure as heck don't want to suck up a dog leash or a chain....

    Oh, because there’s usually a dog attached to one end?

    I like the idea myself. The city here picks up twice per season but are known to miss streets and too many parked cars they drive on by.

    If I were a homeowner I'd want the option to make a call and have someone swing by for curbside pickup rather than wait who knows how long for the city.
