From my prior post and from reading all that everyone is writing in other threads ... I can tell that I am not charging enough an hour. Here is my question ... how much to charge an hour, when I am figuring a price for a job. Here is my situation ... I have a 2003 F-150, close to being paid for, a new 12 foot trailer, a 33" Snapper Hydro, two 21" snappers, Redmax weed eater, Redmax blower, Echo pruners, Echo stick edger with pruning attachment, chainsaw and other hand tools. I am a part-timer. My monthly expense to pay for the trailer and equipment is $350. I have been bidding out my jobs using the rate of $25 an hour, I am making money, but not lots of it. I am thinking I need to be at $30 - 35 an hour. Is that closer or what? Thanks for all your help!!
