  2. First of all, congratulations and good luck with your new business venture. I'm relatively new here but this is a very friendly group with many members willing to offer help to the others.


    There are a lot of factors to consider for your business...including;
    size of the areas to clear, proximity of one customer to the next, scope of services to provide, manpower needed to complete, and so on and so on.

    Have you determined your cost to operate?

    Develop a business plan considering; your costs to operate (fixed and variable), equipment required, labor, supplies, maintenance, your other competition in the neighborhood ....

    There is a lot to consider...just do your homework well and you'll be fine.

    Good luck!!!!!!

    there are a lot of threads here on pricing and so on. You will find that its quite regional in costing and even the way you go about it (per season/per push...). For a start, look at some of the threads here and look for contractors in your immediate area. It could be competitive there, but experience shows that quality counts in either lawncare or plowing.
