I’m really excited about thebecause it’s so powerful and easy to use. It’s great for every handyman whether you are just starting out or have been in business for years.
I remember when I started my business I was all over the place with my pricing. I had no idea what I was doing and it took me a while to finally figure something out.
I started charging per hour which seemed to work out fine (at the time). Later I realized that is not the best way to charge in this business and I knew I needed to switch to flat rate pricing. This was a big problem because I got so comfortable charging per hour that I was a little intimidated by switching to flat rate. I wasn’t keeping track of how long projects were taking or how much I should be charging for each one.
If there was aout there at that time it would have saved me years of hard work and a lot of headache. But there wasn’t so I had to figure everything out on my own. I started keeping track of how much I was charging for jobs and how long each one was taking to complete. This enabled me to transition into flat rate pricing.
After I switched to flat rate pricing a funny little thing started happening. I began to pay attention to how long I was taking on jobs and it encouraged me to complete them faster. This was great for myself as well as my customers. I was getting in and out of their houses in a shorter amount of time. The funny thing that was happening was that I was making more money. My hourly rate increased dramatically. As I gained more experience with the work I was doing I kept doing better work while still shaving off actual work time and also keeping the same price and in some cases raising the price.
When I realized what had happened it was like a break though. My customers liked the fact that they had a flat rate going into the project. They knew exactly what it was going to cost them to get the work done.
When I knew it was good for my business I also knew that it would be good for every other handyman business out there. That’s when I decided to start working on the handyman price list. After years of much thought, headache, hard work, and planning I am proud to introduce The Handyman Price List.
