A few days ago i was raking leaves for a customer when he asked me if i would do some pressure washing for him. I said sure. One problem, i had no pressure washer. I told him that i would get back with him with an estimate the next day. So i went to all the stores that sold pressure washers. I found the best deal at the local Northern Equipment store. 2.5 @ 2500 for $399. With a couple of other accesories including a 24' ladder, the total would come up to around $550. Not bad for start up. Anyway, yesterday i went back with an estimate of $1,140. The dude jumped on it. It's a nice neighborhood. $200-300K average. He also said that he would spread my name around. I already have a couple of other customers wanting some work done. Question is...could anyone give me some tips on estimating. I heard that majority of other companies are charging round $2,500 for the job that i did. How would i write this down so it looks pleasing to the customers.?? Any and all tips appreciated. Thanks.
