    Yep, I very recently priced a job for 3 day , for 2 guys at £400 per day, happy with that job was accepted had a phone call two days later saying they had forgotten that they were getting another quote [emoji849], and all though they like me the other guy was a bit cheaper, without saying a word she told me straight out that his £750 was better than my £1200. Told her there was no way I could ever match that [emoji43].

    I’m originally from Northampton but have lived in Plymouth for 15-16yrs now. Could never move back to the midlands now, hence our move to Aus in the new year.

    I don’t know anyone else that pays more than that around here, the market is a disgusting around here for prices. Some get away with charging more than the average day rate but don’t seem to have regular work and tend to hire there machinery in

    What part of the country are you in? Down here in Plymouth and good climber would be £120-£130 a day and Groundsman £80 and not necessarily with out saw. Not sure about the rest of the country but it’s every Tom,Dick and Harry setting up a tree business and pretty much buying the work and undervaluing the industry by quite a lot.
