What exactly is the point in figuring out your numbers if you just throw them in the trash everytime you get an opportunity to bid a huge property? If you charge $100/hr and it’ll take 8 hours, including drive time, that’s $800 that day. Likewise, if your route has 6 lawns that takes you 8 hours, including drive time, that’s $800 that day. Same rate, just more effecient only having 1 stop instead of 6, which means you’ll accomplish more actual work in a day servicing 1 property than you would 6 but at the end of the day you make the same amount. Regardless, it’s your biz, you know what you need and what you want, so do what you need/want to do. I don’t drop my rates, if I don’t win every bid, no problem. There will always be someone willing to do it cheaper.
