  • Just starting out

    We are a new property maintenance business. we are in the Greater Toronto area and just starting out with fall clean ups and snow removal. Our issue now is pricing jobs. My son has several years doing the work so that is not a problem. We want to start out with residential properties and small business properties. any comments ?

    Welcome to our forum!

    Since your son had been doing this for a while, does he have a good grasp on how long jobs will take when he goes out for an estimate?

    Have you calculated your operating costs? Can you tack on a profit to that and use that figure when creating an estimate?

    Have you experimented with the business calculators on here? They should help you come up with figures to charge.

    Let me know if this helps.
