    Thanks Guys!
    Yes I have read that post and has helped me. In years past I was one of those guys running around and trying to bid every job at a flat rate. I was just hoping if someone can relay some more info on a better method of pricing curbside vaccuming.
    Thanks!

    id like to find someone to remove curbside leaves for the clients i have. id get them to an accessible place and pay someone for removal. i live an hour awaay from my clients and im solo so i dont have much room for alot of leaves.

    I sub any curbside vac jobs out to another local LCO. He charges me and everyone else $60 per load (1 load minimum), which I think is cheap. I bill it out at $75/load.

    I don't know how many yards his box is, but it's a 1 ton Chevy dump with a fairly tall (guessing 6 foot) box.

    I'm wondering about JUST vacuuming the leaves, no clean up. What do people charge for that?

    :D
