View Full Version : Fair pricing

Do you believe that it is fair if you do not raise prices for current customers that renew every year, yet raise prices for new customers.

Your regular lawn maintenance customer asks for a tree to be installed on their property. Since they are a current lawn maintenance customer you only charge them $52 per hour for labor.

But now lets say that a new customer, not a lawn maintenance calls up, and asks for a tree to be installed on their property, but since they are not a current customer you charge $70 per hour for labor.

Is this fair?

I think it is fair to charge what ever the market will bare. If the customer is willing to pay it, why not charge them the highest amount you can get?

Even if they are neighbors?

Well, it is ultimately up to you how you charge. You can give price breaks to whomever you want but I think when you feel comfortable with it, you should go for the highest price you can get.
