    You hourly rate + rubbish removal. Your hourly rate should be increased from your regular rate because u r using a chainsaw.
    The more difficult/dangerous it is the higher the rate. If u r inexperienced & the job in your assessment is difficult/dangerous, pass on it untill u have had enough experience to be confident.
    If u plan doing trees on anyting like a regular basis, do the coarse!
    Cheers Dean.
    ooops, I meant a quote using your hourly rate.

    Yes correct. I charge an extra $20 an hr for easy chainsaw work when working out the quote. Anything that is a bit more risky I charge more. I advise the client straight up front it is dangerous work and it costs a lot more. Most understand.

    Yep I do the same! Just remember though if you are trying to quote larger jobs THE PROFESSIONAL TREE LOPPERS will probably quote it cheaper than you because they have all the gear, expertise etc so until you do the course and get the experience probably wise to stay away from the big stuff Also forgot he insurance is a killer

    I just bought something else from them and paid for it today.

    I just recieved about 3000 adhesive magnets to put on the back of my business cards today. VOILA instant cheapie magnets. So far got 7 regulars from that my previous run of magnetic cards. Some ring up after a day of recieving them some a month after. So they do keep them.

    I also bought a paper guillotine for when I make a6 flyers to go with my magnetic cards.

    i got mine for $65 trailblazer 2.7mm as well from local mower shop. paying $72 delivered is very reasonable.
