And they will use that against you.I can’t remember if I included this before or not - for the one property that this thread has mostly been about - the 27k one, we have done some smaller events for them this year using the same hourly rates and never had any questions.
Fortunately this storm was significantly worse and longer lasting, and they added more area as well. Actually received a thank you email today for all of the help last week.And they will use that against you.
Why did it take so long, cost so much this time?
Welcome to the snow plow life.
Small events vs bigger events.
Of course it will take longer.
But if they agreed to time and materials then they shouldn't complain. But they will.Ain't that the truth. As long as you previously told your customers your rates you shouldn't have any problems. Customers always have sticker shock when it comes to loader rates. They always seem to think that they should pay the same rate as a 5hp snow blower
That’s my sub price for the guy who holds the insurance and supplies the salt for his sites. The amount we charge for our own sites is either a per push/per salt or seasonal rate and your right it does come out a good hit higher than my sub price.You're in Jersey?
You're on the low side of pricing.
So that's not really the rate.That’s my sub price for the guy who holds the insurance and supplies the salt for his sites.
Right, but it is based on an hourly rate and the amount of time estimated to accomplish that work.The amount we charge for our own sites is either a per push/per salt or seasonal rate
What does the subcontracting rate have to do with this discussion? The OP is the contract holder and the one performing the work?your right it does come out a good hit higher than my sub price.
