    i know im gonna get chewed out for askin this for the millionth time ... but how do you guys bid on parking lots like Meijers parking lot versus a little doctors office ... by the total square feet or by how long it takes you to do it ... i have the bid on a lot which is pretty good size but its not a meijer parking lot size .... thanks ahead of time ...

    I don't go after those huge lots but I have a friend that does. He charges by the hour per truck, loader etc.....

    first of try the search function...since it has been asked a million times i bet you can search for it....

    what equipment do you have or are you going to use? how productive is that equipment? how long do you think it will take? what are you going to charge for said equipment?


    equipment cost x quanity of equipment x length of time you think it will take you = charge
