    Yeah I think we would all need a picture or better description of what needs to be done before we would be able to give you some correct pricing.

    Yeah, for something like that you definitely want to go with an hourly rate. It's very difficult to estimate time on that sort of project, cause chances are something else unexpected will come up. Guaranteed.

    I would have to agree with One of Three. Let them know what your plans are for your clean up. Inform them you will keep them up to date on how it is going. They are more time consuming then they may appear. I would charge by the hour. Other situations will appear weather it is small or larger. It is your time and it is valuable.
