    So at $200 CAD roughly biweekly cut for Let's say 45 minutes to 1 hours work on site. Thats the highest so far in the reply Of course i like this one better lol. But i want to drum up business so all those reply give me a good idea where to start on my next bid or to negociate with them if i heard from them again. Thanks a lot guys

    Unless the bid was monthly and not per cut like you said I think it’s insanely expensive. With minimal trimming that looks like about an hours work. And you don’t get double as much on a EOW cut vs an every week cut. Maybe a little more but not double.

    ( per cut with a biweekly service Prepaid monthly )
    I was really not sure how much to charge to this kind of commercial, thats why the best for me was to ask here to you guys :) .

    Now i just hope they ask me to negociate the rates so i would have a chance to drop the price. If not well, i will do better next time.

    Thanks for your input, Appreciated
