Here is her response.
I'm sure it is a little deceiving on the volume of leave that tree can produce! Thank you for all your hard work. I will forward payment before Friday.
Because I am so knew at quoting and doing this kind of work everything is a learning experience...
It would have been a nightmare if I would have had to remove all the leaves in my trailer it is only a 4'X8' with high sides would have been at least 3 - 4 trips to the green dump.
Same as yesterday I did another yard clean up mostly for leaves just the driveway filled my trailer fortunately all I had to do was back up down their driveway and dump the leaves over the bank.
So two lessons are standing out for me...
1) is get a trailer that can do the job unfortunately that is going to have to wait until the spring.
2) quote by the job not by the hour.
I quoted Mondays job with a finished price unfortunately due to all of the freaking leaves dropping of that huge tree it took an extra hour to get the job done so it ended up taking me the entire time I had allotted instead of scoring an extra $50.00.
Yesterdays job I lost out I was done in 3 1/2 hours but that is because I work extremely hard and race myself to get the job done so but I had quoted an hourly rate so I could only charge for 3 1/2 hours.
If I would have quoted the job instead I would have charged an extra $80.00 - $100.00 = my financial loss again.
