I have a question regarding pricing for a forestry job spraying gorse and broom.
Ive gone through the extensive process of acquiring the contract and at great cost with a new health and safety plan and all the PPE gear.
A subcontractor of mine is surpplying a flat deck truck and a 800liter spray tank for the job.
I will be paying him. 70c km and ill be making. 10c off the top.
The forestry company has brought the chemicals but I'm having to store them at my place with all the required hazchem gear and co.
Considering I have the contract, pletty much supplying all gear including water pump, second spray gun and reel,, what do you think I should be charging him out at, at an hourly rate.
I used to contract out myself about 10 years ago as a gorse sprayer had my own ute and everything. I supplied chem at a premium didn't charge km's but charged 60bucks for first man and 100 for 2. That was 10 years ago tho...
