It seems like I have been doing lots of work for nothing these days! I keep giving estimate after estimate and not getting the work. I try to keep my pricing at a fair range but am also trying to start a legitimate business with shop, trucks, proper equipment and people who do quality work. When I bid a lawn for what should cost $35-40, I bid it at $30 to give the people a break and try to get the work and its not good enough. I listen to people posting saying that you should at least get $35 per hr for labor but it just ain't happening around here. What do you charge for mowing time, $60 hr? Yeah RIGHT! Maybe I'm charging too much but what can I charge to stay in business? WHat are some strategies I can use to get the work?
