    I use my costs + my desired profit multiplied by 2 than subtract 50% to reach my hourly rate. Than I figure out how long it will take to complete the job, and multiply that by my hourly rate and put that number on my bid. Once in a while I'll just add my costs plus profit to save time, since the end result is the same, but that's not as cool of a formula :rolleyes:

    What are you considering a mile. Pricing for 1,2 standard lanes of mile or a airport width mile?
