lawn aeration

I am just starting out in this business, but one of my customers wants there yard to be aerated and over seeded. The lot is half an acre with a about a 2500 square foot house on it and I need to know how to price this. I am renting the aerator for $40 dollars. The customer said regardless if I do it or not it is going to be done. I am lost on this one because I do not want to get burned. I need a price on the over seeding and what everyone charges for aeration. Thanks Advanced Lawn Care.
