    CopyofHourlyRateChargeoutsheet2.xls

    1/ Start by knowing your own costs - I've attached LJN's free Hourly Rate Calculator.

    2/ Break the job down into logical, manageable sections and price using the figures calculated from above

    3/ Ensure your Quote is detailed and clear

    4/ Submit a the Quote based upon the above using a fixed price (my recommendation - ie not an hourly rate)

    5/ Smile as you get job :)

      I was going to say £5 an hour is plenty but you beat me to it:)

            £5 an hour Richard? Surely you can shave a little off that amount, what about if you use my mower? It's a good one, paid £25 at a car boot , I've got an extension lead and everything???

              Well in that case I can go to £4.75

                  The only caveat is I can't drive so you will have to collect me and bring me back home afterwards

                    Oh, now that's a problem, neither do I, my mate will pick you up on his way to work, then take you home when he finishes. Thinking about it I may only need a half hour slot, by my reckoning that makes your payment £2.25, will you take a cheque?

                      :)

                      It may be best just to ignore me by the way as I'm not really very good at this so listen to the better informed!
