Re: Tilling pics
That was only ONE extreme case. I thought I had made that clear. I'm usually in the 4-7 cent range. As I said in one of my posts, I usually am given a tip. I remember the first year I was tilling I quoted a guy$60.00 to till his garden. Brand new, really nice dirt and NO rocks. 5 miles from home. Got done, loaded up my tiller and the guy hands me $75.00. I told him I said $60.00. He says I know. Keep it. You earned it.
Man, I was just puttin in time. It was a sweet job. I have yet to have anybody kick at my prices and they're usually really nice and kind. I dunno....
I always ask LOTS of questions beforhand when I get a new caller. I ask 'em to cut the grass as close as possible, ask about buried utilities and is it in a newer development? Etc. etc. I always give them the lowest and highest price and if they don't like it that's fine. They can go to the local rental company and rent a rear tine tiller for half a day for $58.00. That usually makes 'em stop and reconsider.
