Broker pricing

We have been contacted by a broker that needs need some bids.
How much do you charge a broker for trashouts, initial clean, etc.

Can anyone give me an idea?

Thanks

Find out whom you are bidding against, national or another local contractor. THE REALTORs KNOW THE PRICE THEY ARE TRYING TO BEAT !! If you want teh work bad enough and it will be a good account then bid it low and get ur foot in the door then slowly raise your prices and you'll find a thresh hold where they will not give you the work. if the property is clean and it is just a wipe down then 80$ for the cleaning if it is BAD 300$ trashout some banks have a cap for init svc, I wont do tthe trashouts for less than 500 a truckload. evean a half load is 350 again it VARIES

Dealing with a broker, who isn't going to be taking a percentage, you can still use the FHA pricing as a guide, but you'll want to discount the pricing to fit your business model. Figure your costs - labor, gas, fees, etc. and price accordingly. $40 per lock isn't too much. depending on the distance to the dump and number of loads - $40 per cubic yard isn't too much to ask.

If you've never done a cost analysis on the work you do, now is kinda late, but do it anyways.

We have brokers we work with all the time because of our pricing and quality.
The broker usually does not care about the pricing they are merely facilitating... but the client will so you want to be competitive. Do you not have a fee structure you work with???
If not you may want to consider coming up with one.
If you need assistance this is some of the consultation work we are now doing...send an email...
