O.K. Guys, another new-be question. I got a real slow start this year due to not knowing what the heck I needed to do to get the ball rolling. I want to be sure Im ready for fall clean up. I have no experience in fall clean up other then doing my own. In my neck of the woods leaves start falling the 2nd or 3rd week of October and are completely down by 1st week of November. Here are some questions I need answers to: 1) When would you plan on starting these jobs? 2) If you start before all the leaves are down, would you come back towards the end of this season to do a quickie? And if so, how would you charge for the 2nd visit? 3) Speaking of charging, do you estimate the time it would take to do the work? And what would be a reasonable rate per hour? Im in Michigan. 4) When quoting these jobs, do you quote everything as one package or individually i.e. gutters, annuals removal, leaf gathering, leaf removal? 5) Am I missing any thing in question 4? 6) Last one, I will be doing these jobs with no more then 1 other guy, what would be my best plan of attack; Use blowers and tarps, get the vacuum system for my 60 Cub Tank ($2500), or both? Thanks guys, very cool of you to help out could-be competitors.
