anyone here charging for water import & disposal? $45.00 seems fair and legit.
Whuta you using, bottled water?
Not bottled water but wear and tear on van aside from r/o treatment. Not to mention the fuel and time required to properly dump in CA
In the end I think alot of folks charge the same, at least in each market. I could see in some areas folks would like paying for "legal and green" water disposal. Especially in Cali. College towns like Davis or higher end city areas. Might be a way to justify a few more $ than others.
Factor it into your over all charge. People hate being nickeled and dimed.
Raise your price or sell the Butler and go VLM
So I guess no ones charging... that’s cool.
No, I charge extra
I just dont itemize it.
do you itemize gas, water, oil changes and brake dust on your invoices??
think about it
is that what your heard?
no one itemizes it, but must account for it if applicable
What they're saying is, you work it into your costs of doing biz, and price your services accordingly.
Not itemize routine biz costs/expenses
No problem, it must be new if none of you have noticed this trend. My best wishes of success to you all.
It's done in many fields, but customers resent it.
For instance some add a fuel surcharge when fuel goes UP but keep it when fuel goes down.
Never "announce" a price increase. Just do it without fanfare. Small incremental increases are normal business, better than the shock of a big jump.
nothing new under the sun, Jose
if want to add surcharges for routine biz expenses, have at it.
let us know how it works out for you and how big your repeat custy base is in 5-10 years hence
So I guess it’s safest to live in the box.
It’s the cost of doing business. I don’t charge a “changing my socks” fee but I do price my services well enough to motivate me to put on socks.
reckon it depends on the neighborhood most as well what the box is made of.
no security with cardboard box, much better to build with OSB and 2x4s
(new housing construction dumpsters will be rich with those materials)
regardless, I wouldn't want it here
I'd set my goals much higher and strive to acquire a van that runs .
I'd feel more comfortable and safe/secure in a mobile home
