So the grinder costs $100 per day. What are you charging to grind stumps? How long does it take to grind a typical normal sized stump? How far down do you grind it?

Sorry for all the questions but, I have thought of offering this also. I have also been thinking of pool service a lot lately too.

I found this information on another site and I hope it helps you with your stump grinding bidding.

Quote:
Typical costs:

* Small trees up to about 30-feet high, such as a Black Mulberry, Dogwood or Russian Olive, with clearance of buildings and utility lines cost about $125-$437 to remove.
* Medium-sized trees from 30-60 feet tall including the Black Alder, Black Gum and Crabapple, that are set apart from buildings and utilities run $175-$900.
* Large trees 60-80 feet high, including Red Oak, Pine and Black Locust, are estimated at $400-$1,000.
* Trees 80-100 feet tall such as the American Ash, Bur Oak and Sugar Maple can cost anywhere from $962-$1,400+.


Additional costs:

* Stump grinding pulverizes the remaining tree stump into a pile of sawdust and may be priced separately or as part of the estimate. Large stump grinding averages $169-$300. Small stumps are about $75.
* While branches and litter from the tree removal are cleaned up by the tree crew, the cost estimate does not always include hauling away the large pieces of potential firewood. Some companies charge up to $350 to haul away trunk wood from a 30-foot tree removal.
* Chipping branches may be an extra $65-$150 per hour, if not included in the estimate. Some outfits charge around $50 to haul away the load of chips.
* Hiring an out-of-the-area arborist will cost drive time plus mileage. Arborist consultations can run $125 per hour.
* Check city codes. Some trees ** either on the street or on private property ** are protected in certain areas.
Let me know if this helps

Honestly... I didn't even know such a product existed . I've heard it was super expensive to remove a stump, and that's why most people don't remove them. Grinding the stump down seems like a much cheaper alternative, but maybe the expensive grinding of a stump is what is associated with an expensive stump removal.

I stopped by my local contractor supply store to inquire about renting a stump grinder. They rent it for $165 + tax!!! The guy behind the desk was super nice, and came around the counter to walk me to the warehouse and actually show me what one looked like and how to use it. He even let me in on a secret, he said if I came in to rent one on a Friday night, right before closing, I would have it for all day Saturday, AND Sunday since their closed Sunday. So for the rental price of one day, I could get 2 days. I have no clients right now, besides my neighbor, and a family friend, but I'm starting small and researching all my possibilities at the moment.

On a side note, I registered to Salesgenie.com yesterday, (a suggestion from another member) and I'm working with my sister who's worked in sales. I'm putting together a letter to explain what services I offer etc...

sorry for the rant. when my fingers start typing, there's no end

Let us know how the sales genie works.

As far as the stump grinding, I think Home Depot has smaller ones that are pretty effective and cheap.

If you get a chance, stop by there and see how much they charge.

Over a two day period I bet you could get a bunch of stumps grinded.

yea otherwise pricing would be all over the place. I would have to charge $180-$200 to make a profit, but if I were to get more than one request for stump grinding I would definetly lower the price. It would be a hard thing to price out. I'll stop by Home Depot between today and tomorrow, and let you know.

I've sent 475 color flyers on Wednesday and I only received 1 estimate so far.

I've seen most of my flyers in the garbage can at the post office, so does this mean people are tired of flyers ?
