working on my first bid job. help would be appreciated
Figure in how much everything cost for you to run a business for a day. Add the amount of money you want to profit per day. Divide that number by the amount of hours you will spend actually at a customer’s property.
Here is an example…this is just an example so do not use these numbers.
Fuel, trimmer string, ware and tear on equipment plus all the things to be legal cost $150 per day
You want to profit $150.00 per day
You know on a 10 hour day you will only be working 6 hours making money. The rest of time is working on equipment, paper work, or traveling from job to job.
For a 10 hour day, with 6 hours of work that you can charge for, you will need $50.00 per hour to operate while you’re on a job working.
Hope this helps?
