Default Price Charge Survey

Hey guys. I was wondering what everyone was charging. Your normal hourly rate and your minimum charge for cutting grass. Also what city and state your located in. Were going to start a poll that way we can all compare and help each other out.

Hoss,

Maybe I could set up a database to help organize this. What services would you like to track and how should it be organized? Should the size of the crew come into factoring or do you just want to know the hourly price and the different services?

Would you like to see other services? If so, what would be important for you to see?

yea that would be nice to i guess. I would say whatever services they have. from grass cutting to gutter cleaning any and all would be welcomed. That might help other people by showing them what there is to offer and what there not.

Hoss,

I made a page to do this.

It's basic at the moment but potentially very powerful. Try it out and let me know how it works so far.

National Average Lawn Care Prices

This could become very informative and helpful.

Yea I like that Steve. Now everytime you post on it do you have to exit out to go to a different part? I did lawn mowing and gutter cleaning and leaf clean-up but all i did is click the back button. will it still work that way. cause everytime i was finished it showed the national average for mowing

Here is a screen capture of what I got so far with the pricing average.



Well I am just getting this started. I wanted to get something very basic to start getting data inputed, so please tell everyone you know to enter the data, also let me know what services I should expand it to and what else I should add.

Right now yes. But I will change that. This was just a fast way to do it.

Yes, I will get that working better too.

That's all I have reporting at the moment but that will expand. I needed to get something up and running.

I don't think this is too good of an idea. I mean my numbers are my numbers because of how i run my company I may charge $115 and hour per crew because they have uniforms, we know my numbers, we pay taxes, we are making an employee hand book, we pay ins., we pay to be in the BBB, we are licensed, We have nice/professional equipment and vehicles. . .the next guy does it for beer money so all he needs is gas money and some extra left over to spend at the bar . . . There are just too many variables
