Potential customer wants a bid for leaf clean-up. I want to know what you guys think. The house sits on approximately one acre of land. The front yard is divided with well manicured grass towards the street and then a large area between the grass and the house has about 10 trees, about 30 bushes scattered here and there and has a small layer of pine straw completely covered with leaves. This area is so congested that I could not get a lawnmower between the bushes to mulch so I would have to blow towards the house, rake and bag or use a wheelbarrow to dump the leaves in the woods. The backyard is medium sized (about 1/2 acre), downward sloping (slightly) and the grass is pretty high with leaves everywhere. The customer said her husband usually puts a tarp down, blows the leaves onto the tarp and then dumps the leaves in a wooded area behind the backyard. She said she received a quote that was ridiculously high and would rather pay me instead of someone she doesn't know (I've only met her once in my wife's beauty shop, so I wouldn't say we "know" each other). Anyway, the 1st quote she received could be any amount because she's pretty CHEAP!!! I think it would take me between 10-20 hours to complete this job due to having to rake everything, the amount of leaves 10 trees have produced, and the small amount of space between each bush and tree. I could easily fill up 100 bags. My initial thought was to bid between $400 to $450 to dump in the woods or $5 per bag. I wouldn't be upset if I didn't get this job cause it looks like a ton of work and I could be cutting grass instead, but I do want to give a fair bid and it would be nice to earn $400+ without driving from one job to the next. What do you think?
