Hey guys how much would you charge for this just to cut up and leave on site don't have to haul away
What lengths does it need to be cut into?
I've never done a job like this, but I would probably charge $75. Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to cut that up.
REALLY $75??? i was thinking like 200. he wants it stacked beside his house also-i should have mentioned that, im thinking it would take me and another guy at least 1 hr each if not more. so 2 guys 2 hours a piece worst case is 4 total man hours.
At least $200.00
Be clear about: [a] what the stump will look like and the presence (or lack) of sawdust on his property after your departure.
If it is really 2 guys * 2 hours for your team then you cannot go any lower than $240. (Assuming that covers windshield time too.) $1/minute is the minimum IMO.
Could be about 1/4 cord of wood after dressing. So, he has $50 in value from the cut wood. Slip that into the pricing conversation.
As well, for the love of all things big and small, offer to tidy-up that driveway (for another $XXXX)
Perhaps a third conversation, "Mr. Homeowner, while I am here, there are some other trees that caught my eye....."
Great opportunity for some upsells as @EmeraldCut has suggested. He and @Joana Williams are correct, you have got to cover windshield time, the cutting and stacking, and cleanup as suggested. In my eyes, gives the impression of a proactive, solution seeker!
Ok. That changes what I would charge, I didn't know yet that it needed to be stacked next to the house. From your original post, I thought you were just cutting it and leaving it in a pile next to the driveway. I agree with the other estimates then, about $200 - $250.
