    Make sure you call and get the service lines fixed, i am not sure what the laws are. I would bid per hour, just guess at how much time it would take you to till and also make sure the homeowner waters the night before....that will relieve a hell of a headache.

    Any job you do needs to have a standard per hour rate. This is based on cost. For a till job, cost of fuel, your time(50 is a good start) and what you charge per hour for equipment.

    I rent alot of equipment that I do not use on a regular basis.

    equip rental $
    Time $
    Material(gas) $

    Just a starting point. YOu can estimate how long it is going to take you and give him a price, or tell him you charge him so much per hour.

    Like your flyer.....you do it yourself?????
