    I read some suggestions here of $1-$1,000 per push.

    Maybe more?

    Seems reasonable to me.

    Ask them what they want to pay per push then subtract 99.99%, Pad your time by 50% hire out subs an pay them 49.99% an then subtract your over head by .01%. So that should be what you are wanting to get paid per push!!

    it's a pretty wide spread question with many answers!
    we don't charge at all for such a small property.

    Before asking what to charge, do you know your costs per hour?

    If you want to take the guesswork out of your bidding and base your fees on your overhead and expenses, we have what you need. You will never need to ask anyone again what to charge.
