    Such a learning curve on pricing jobs. I try to stick around 100-150 a hr or 600 for the day. Would be nice to make 600 everyday but just not realistic early on at least for me. Will be finishing 3 jobs this week. 1850 washing pavers sanding and sealing then 600 clean then sand and lastly have a 12 ft exterior wall that’s 20 feet wide gonna paint that for 400 so 2850 this week!

    I’ve found myself quoting jobs too cheap. I learned when I washed a 2,300 square foot home for $350 and testing the waters I booked a 1,500 square foot home for the same price. I realized then I needed to be charging more for the bigger homes.

      2 jobs a week is good have your min price set at ($ per hour+ 30%) you can't go wrong.

    I just started 3 weeks ago, and have done around 15 estimates and got 0 jobs. I’m doing .20 per sqft for houses and .15 per sqft for driveways. Everyone I have followed up with tells me the same thing “I can get so and so to do it for about 150 dollars”
    I can’t land a single job here.

    • Indiana Power Clean
      Indiana Power Clean 7 months ago +2

      dont be discouraged by not landing jobs the people who dont want to pay are not your customers .if you didnt close on 15 leads you might be out pricing yourself or may need to adjust your approach, when customer says they can get Joe Shmoe to come for x amount dollars cheaper then remind customer that you are a professional with commerical grade equipment and not a "handy man"with a pressure washer from walmart, and that you are licensed and insured for both your and there protection , your the quality guy not the cheap guy and never sale yourself short. you might try flat rating jobs until lyou get a better feel for pricing and quoting, charge a 350 min and build from there

      Got to keep grinding bro. What has worked for me is always show up professional with your professional rig. Do a walkthrough and explain the cleaning process. I also will throw in something free like cleaning the shed to make the customer to think they are getting a deal for example. So many ways takes some time then will take off. Good luck man! Always have a edge up from the competition.

      You need both of those things you need a LLC and a business license and business name. which isn’t expensive if you register it through your LLC 25 dollars I think.. And general liability insurance which is 500-1500 for my area yearly. I saw quotes for about 29 dollars a month not bad at all. (All of this is for my area prices may vary)

    • Forever Self Employed
      Forever Self Employed  11 months ago

      I have no idea because i don’t know about how big the driveways, and garages are but if you can go look at them figure up a lower cost average for all of them because you’ll be getting a higher quantity.
      Or just give this dude a range on what you would need based on size of the job.

    • Tony B
      Tony B 11 months ago

      For a bigger commercial job, I’d go at a lower rate /Sq ft since it’d be more about squeezing out the quantity in that contract as well as any future contracts from that contractor if u do good job😉, rather than a higher one time payday
