THIS IS FOR ALL RESDENTIAL

MINIMUMS 35 $ANY SIZE SMALL OR LARGE
THE CHARGE FOR 2-6" THEY 6-12" AND 12" AND UP 25 % INCREASE AT EVERY 3 INCH INTERVAL
DOES THAR SOUND RIGHT OR ARE THERE OTHER WAYS TO CHARGE

1 1 35
2 1 35
3 CARS LENGTH 1 CAR WIDE $35
4 CARS LENGTH 1 CAR WIDE $40
5 1 45
6 1 50
7 1 55
8 1 60
9 1 65

I don't read posts which are ALL CAPS. It's irritating.

Rats, if you printed out that post and handed it to a customer and said "this is my schedule for charges", do you think they would understand that? I'm very confused, but I've had a bad day. What's with all CAPS?

9 foot, I know you were asked to turn off your Caps before. It is harder to read.

Here is the post to you and your response:

Just in case you didn't know, there is a key to turn off the capital letters. It should be by your left little finger titled "caps lock". Push it. Then when you want a capital letter use the key below it titled "shift". Using all capital letters means you're shouting and is very difficult to read.

I would suggest, to start out, that you not publish a price guide. Tell the person that you would like to look over what they want done, then tell them "that will be $xxx.xx". Perhaps ask what they paid the last guy. Be ready to negotiate, at least in the beginning. Others here probably have better ideas, but I think that would beat giving the potential customer a confusing formulae with info that doesn't apply to them. Also, two lots or driveways of basically the same size could involve very different problems leading to one warranting a higher price than the second. Good Luck.
