Got a phone call today about a leaf cleanup we did. Sent two guys $40.00 per man hour. Total was $110.00. Sent the invoice and got a call tonight asking if I think my charges are a little outrageous. I told her that anything that we do such as shrub trimming, tree work, leaf cleanup is all hourly at the above rate (which I also explained to her before we even did the work). I get the feeling that she is trying to work her way into paying a smaller bill, which won't happen. Do any of your "older" customers not understand that our world is a more expensive place these days?
