Hey everyone well we bid a job for removing 200 square feet ofraised garden bed. Ok so here it goes we went to an estimate for removal of a garden bed, but when we get there it is more like a mound of dirt with stuff growing out of it. Our costs would be $175 to rent a small Bobcat or Dingo for twenty four hours we figured the total job time would be about 6-7 hours. This time includes picking up bobcat,removal of bed, dumping dirt and travel time. We will be sending to employee's myself and and our lead crew member. We both will be getting 12-14 dollars an hour depending on how long it takes. At $12 or labor cost is $12 x 14 hours 168.00 at $14 x 12 hours = 168.00 So basically the employee will make the same amount still if he gets done faster and we might add a bonus but we never tell them that ahead of time. so $168 + $175 = $343 Plus gas lunch and all the other aspects of the business We have Bid $875.00 What do you guys think Reasonable, to high, or to low? All replies are welcome but remember before you answer we are a insured,business licensed,LimitedLiabiltyCorporation,claim all Are jobs for tax purposes even if payed in cash.
