Ok, Ive read many threads here and have just on last question on this subject. When bidding larger accounts. Lets say the account has four acres of open land with minimal trimming. Is this where you bid your per acre amount? With the right equipment 4 acres would not take long at all so I would think if you bid 4 acres at an hourly rate you could possibly be making less money than if you had an per acre amount? Now lets say the same 4 acres of grass has much more trimming and has many obstacles. If you were to use your per acre amount you could possibly be loosing money. Do you instead of using your per acre amount, figure out how long its going to take to do service this account and then figure in your hourly rate? Thanks, just trying to clear this question up. Ive read many posts on this and found some have a per acre amount and some say bid hourly?
