I'm sure this has been posted before, but I couldn't find it.
Customer wants a simple flower bed done. Found all of the prices at Lowes + Home Depot herself. She wants to just buy them herself and then give me the receipt to go pick them up.
I mark up materials even when I buy them at retail stores in order to cover travel time, taxes, etc... When my business has grown in size I certainly will not be doing this type of thing, and I don't want to start with her. How do you all go about this type of thing?
To me seem like you would just charge her your labor and any materials you may need extra and a charge for your time and travel, gas etc. I don't get that request all to much but it seems like a way to handle it. Thats just me.
