Hi Luke,

You and me both.

I haven't been able to really sit down and get on the forum since Christmas! But now everything has calmed down here and I am back too

WOHOOO 2008!

Welcome back, guys!

I think 2008 is going to be GREAT for Green & Clean Lawn Care, too... we've already gotten about 10 calls in the last 4-5 days.... went and did a $500 in 7.5 hours today.... we're getting busy and it's not anywhere near spring yet!!

Do you have any advice to others on how you bid on such jobs?

Well, on the clean-up, we figured our time x $60/hr... the leaves we hauled off at $3/bag (x 25 bags)... The gutters I just kinda guess on.... and the Christmas lights I just threw a $25 charge in because they asked me to do it when we showed up to work... it wasn't in the original quote... and I was already on a ladder cleaning gutters anyway....

As long as we're making around $60/hour, I'm happy.
