How much would you charge for the following job? Note: I've already done the initial 'knockdown' of this property (2 cuts)...there is still a lot of grass that requires further cuts to chop up and disperse clippings. I anticipate I will be commissioned to go back and 'pretty-up' the property this week (currently, this is not a regular job...but could turn into one). The particulars: * a little under an acre with a 9,000 sq ft storage warehouse * pretty much flat land * minimal trimming (once it's back under control, that is!!) * 60" 27hp Exmark ztr to do job The situation: * 14+ inches of rain in August * property neglected for a good month, translating to 1+ feet of thick green grass (much of it laid over, of course) * took 2 hours to do the 2 cuts and blow off the property My per-man-hour rate is $40. Based on time the price of the job would be $80. However, should I be charging more based on the conditions? How much would you charge? Would you charge more because it was an 'on-the-fly', last-minute thing and not a regular weekly job on your schedule? Would you charge more because the property had been neglected so long and was out of control? Would you charge more for above-average wear-and-tear on your mower? Would you charge more for other factors I haven't thought of? What would you charge? ALL INPUT APPRECIATED!! P.S. As mentioned, I've already done the initial job...but I need to give the guy a price/bill!!
