What do you say after u give them your price to leave.
I give em a card and say "let me know", and get in my truck and bounce. that is if they didn't allready tell me the price sounds good and to put em on the list.
I almost always either get the go ahead/no go after I give them the price. People know what they wanna pay.
Yea its very rare i don't get an answer before i leave.
I tell them let me know and I tell them I still have cpl spots open to fill
I am a lot like Goldpro, on the normal residential it is either $30,40 or 50. On the larger commercial accounts I time myself while walking the parameters and around buildings and drives. The time it takes me to walk the major lawn is a multiplier on lawns I already mow. example (12 min to walk = 48 min to mow) @ $1. per min mowing charge = $50 charge.
This system give me the best real time estimate on mowing around many buildings large obstacles, drives ways and side walks.
This is also a real application of the equipment I use, because I have timed both walking time a driving time on lawns I do now. So it is personally applicable.
Same for much bigger lawn, 28 min to walk = 112 min mowing time =$115 charge. works for me..
A wheel measurement is ok, but takes as much more time and has no effect on time to mow said sq foot. Great for fertilizers for sure.
I have never used one, some may think it looks pro but I always thought of it as training wheels.
