  1. Hi, Does anyone have any contact details for someone who can deliver an arctic load of cordwood to Aylesbury, Bucks? So we can split ready for firewood next year. Cheers
  2. Thanks for all the helpful info. Will definitely take it all on board Also will look into waste license now. Cheers guys!
  3. Hi Everyone, Starting a parnership in April - grass cutting, hedge cutting, fencing, turfing, got all the essential equipment, 2 pick ups and a trailer. We are struggling to set out a price per hour for our work Grass cutting: Walk behind mowers & Strimming: We were thinking £30 per hour for labour (£15 each) - if we were using customers lawn mowers etc. And £40 per hour if we used our own tools. Is it best to charge hourly or on the job overall? Extra to remove waste as well. Are we aiming in the right court or is our price massively wrong? Any help would be appreciated! Cheers
  4. OK thank you, people have been saying look after your own accounts, but by the looks of it, and what your advising, they can save you so much money and give you brilliant advice. cheers guys
