Hedge cutting

Recommended Posts

Twenty odd years ago when I started out on my own I'd of charged a cup of tea and left a few cards for the customer to dole out.

 

20odd years later you've run out of cards and can't afford any more :lol:

Hit something in a hedge that damages the blade, and £50 for the job?????

 

Yes, but where do you stop. Clutch might go going to quote for the job, so do you charge, in case clutch goes. Chipper might break down; do you charge for that?

 

I think £50 ish is about what I'd charge. Anything over £100 and I'd feel I'd robbed them. Only my thoughts

£70 it's not just cutting the hedge travel cost is the biggest problem with a job like that. Unless you do it when your on way home if possible but most jobs like that aren't. There's got to be a minimum price/ callout on little jobs.

 

I think you're wrong, nice little job like that on your way home, pays the groundy's wages, do it right you'll be doing it twice a year for ever!

These littl'uns are the cherry on the cake after a days tree cutting.

There is no need to rush over when the client asks for a price,only when you're nearby.

Well said, and sometimes little jobs lead to bigger jobs
