Do you guys have a minimum amount for a job? I've seen this in other fields.

Or do you sort of 'bid no less than a certain amount' if it's a real small job.

If it's less than 1/2 day job, it's still 1/2 day rate + materials and sundries



...is that what you mean?

Our minimum is $250. But to get that price they have to be flexible on scheduling. Most of our work is in a small area, so doing a door or a bathroom is usually fairly easy to squeeze in if they are flexible. I just send one guy to do it when the crew is nearby.

But usually I try to sell a bigger job, particularly if it won't be easy to schedule.

I do no job in the hot part of the season, May through Oct, for less than $400 min. In slow times I will drop to $350. I never do any 1/2 day rates ever.

Whose excavating in the graveyard and digging up these long dead threads that were resting in peace?

Damn, the clergy just don't like giving LAST rites more than once.
