Flat rate and VA work should be all you need to know. A price sheet isn't going to make it look any better

Was just curious 25 a CY is not too bad after the first 10 If the flat fee is not too low. Things are slow right now I wouldn’t work with them forever but if they pay and have a need in my area to me something is better than nothing.

Cherry picking FNMA flat rates for AMS

was the best debris removal pricing I have ever made. $400 for a contractor bag to a small pick up load. It did create some tension, and I'm not really sure how I got away with it for so long, but the moral of the story is:

There are opportunities in even the worst situations, if you are good enough or lucky enough to pull it off, you can't build a business like that, but you can make some good quick money if you know how to work the monkeys.

I look at it like this if I'm able to make 300-400 dollars a day on a bad day I'm content with that and working for them I do that easy plus I work for hud and Freddie Mac so I'm good who cares what anyone else thinks as long as I'm paying my bills I don't owe anyone I'm good I own all my equipment and trucks so it's all profit and always remember you can negotiate so if your slow give them a shoot

So when you own a truck and a mower, it's all profit after that?

Who's paying for your fuel, oil, tires, wear & tear on your truck & mower, etc.?
Who's paying for your GL, E&O, auto insurance?
Where does the office money come from? Cell phone, land line, computer, printer, supplies, internet, bookkeeping?
What about other fees? Dumping, permitting, licensing, taxes?

Experience has proven to me that there is an unacceptable bottom dollar for everything. Many things factor into the equation that determines that amount - The list above shows some of them. Add to that others like the value of my knowledge, time and availability, and the desire to spend time with my family - more than just evenings & weekends (Put it into perspective: Explain to your wife/children that you chose "fill in work'" over time with them because you thought you could make a profit even though their price wasn't exactly up to par).

No thank you. Experience has tought me that working less for more money is better, and I'm kind of enjoying the fruitage of that wisdom.

Disclaimer: I too own a truck & mower!

I’ve already told you more than I know.

Great post!

Here is something to consider. If you charge enough during busy season you don't have to work when it's slow.

We charge what we need and she it snows if we feel like playing in the snow we go out and clear properties if not we stay in and watch the flakes fall and have an adult beverage. Then again I've never accepted a package price less than $1,000.00 and I lost money on that one. We haven't accepted package pricing since. I also didn't call up 5 other companies EXACTLY like the one I lost money on and try their program. If it doesn't work it doesn't work it doesn't matter who the company is.
