How to Price Mowing Jobs
The pricing of mowing jobs can be tricky to navigate. Market prices, overhead costs and profit margins should all be considered when determining right price for each job.
Setting Your Price
When pricing mowing jobs, consider the following factors:
- Market Price: Research what competitors in your area are charging for similar services. Determine if you can price similar services slightly higher or lower based on your level of experience, speciality services and customer convenience.
- Overhead Costs: Calculate your cost of doing business for a given job. Consider things such as the cost of quality mower and supplies, labor and fuel costs, maintenance, insurance and taxes.
- Profit Margin: Make sure all your hard work is rewarded with a healthy profit margin. Consider factors such as the level of difficulty of the job and the amount of time it will take to complete.
When it comes to pricing mowing jobs, there is no one-size-fits all strategy. Research market prices, calculate overhead costs and consider each job’s level of difficulty to develop a pricing strategy that is fair to both you and your customers.
