    hi Steve,
    I always use a Shindaiwa multi Purpose tool with the hedge trimmer attachment they are great, and either my 10' or 16' foot Orchard ladder

    What kind of tools are you going to be using to do this? Depending on what you use, it could really effect your time on site.

    Hopefully no offense will be taken, but, #1 its florida-the economy has struck you guys pretty bad, which is VERY unfortunate. #2 you say its routine. I grew up in MA, where it snows often. If it snowed in FL, you'd charge an outrageous price...where as I wouldn't, because its routine for me.
    No offense taken... I agree with you.

    I also live and work in central florida. I charge (and get) .50 a foot one side and top, hedges under 5 feet. .75 for both sides. add .25 for up to 8 foot. add another .50 over 8 foot. sounds like a lotta math but there you go. I also add 50 dollars for haul away. Then try to find a good burn pile to put it on. (several of my customers have one and tell me to go ahead and throw it on). it takes me about 1 hour to cut about 65 feet of 8 foot hedge, and 4 8 foot separate bushes. thats 100 for the hedge, 50 for the bushes and 50 for haul away. She said wow thats great!!! have done this job 4 times in the last year and a half. Don't underestimate your jobs, you may not get all of them, but its better to make money on the ones you get than to lose your ***.
    Are you looking for a business partner? I only live 16 hours from you. Just sleep on the thought, I don't need an answer tonight. 50-50 split.
