  1. Needing recommendations for someone to fit an arb body on a 3.5t tipper. Looking for something solid with storage not a DIY job based in Glasgow so preferably scotland or north of england. Thanks
  2. Thanks for the reply, yeah I get what you mean about comfort... I was looking at the isuzu grafters aswell but not sure they would be great in terms of comfort
  3. 70k! Haha ... i was thinking of something closer to 30k 🤔
  4. Not sure, we do mainly domestic atm with some commercial work. Is the 7.5ton a bit big for domestic? Currently got a Renault master but its single rear wheels and needing something that will take alot more.. plan is to keep that and get something that will take more weight. Looking at nissan cabstars but just seeing if anyone can advise for or against anything
  5. Look for recommendations on a new arb truck. Whats the best all round?
  6. Yeah i dont want to take the piss but i never charge per hour as it doesnt make sense to, always go by the job... i could do a job in 2 hours that might take you 4 or vice versa. So just asking to see roughly what hourly rate others are charging for this type of work? also ive had to to rearrange a ton of work and mess people about to get this done so wouldnt make sense to charge the same rate
  7. Got a load of emergency work through a local council. Didn't give a price was just told the work needs done and send an invoice later, its early starts and late finishes but I have never done work where i haven't gave a price beforehand and its an on going line.. so just looking for some guidance on what to charge per hour for a team of 3? Advice appreciated Thanks
  8. Haha ... think i will go for ive quoted it as low as I can. Just don't understand why someone would embarrass themselfs for 50 quid.
  9. Went to price a job a couple of weeks ago, the customer said he was waiting on a few other guys coming. I sent him the quote of £550, he replied at the time saying he will review it. Now 2 weeks later hes messaged to say he wants me to do the job but its slightly over his budget... could i do it for £500? Not bothered about the 50 quid but the fact this guys got at least 3 quotes... i must be the cheapest and hes still got the cheek to ask for something off it. This seems to be happening more often now and was wondering how everyone else responds to people trying to get money off just for the sake of it.
  10. Hi, I have been asked to provide a bird nesting report prior to starting a large job. Is the something most companys do themselfs or is it better sourcing someone externally? Just not sure as to exactly how much detail or information would be in a report other than saying there is a bird in your tree!
  11. Whats everyones opinion on how far you would stump grind roots? Done a job recently where the woman wanted a stump removed and got a call back to say i had missed part of a root... which was about 5 metres long ... went back and got it. Wheres the line?
  12. Will have a look cheers!
  13. Yeah but when im done climbing i help out the groundy and my hands take a beating wearing nothing
