    How do you estimate/charge for installing christmas lights? I did a few last year and was never confident in my price. I just charged by the hour. Some were good, but some houses with higher peaks and more work, hourly rate did not seem fair to me.

    A buddy of mine (who is full of it some times) said he heard of a company that you can order long strings of lights without attached ends from. They send you hundreds of feet of lights and you customize the stand to each house. Has anyone else heard of this? If so, do you have any contact info for this company?

    The best thing for your business would be to spend 3-4 hours reading the previuos threads in this board on Christmas lights. The wealth of info here will help you immensely
