Hey guys, in an effort to obeying the rules of The Wall by not discussing pricing, I would however, like to ask about the format for billing or invoicing. The reason I am asking this, is because I recently did some work for a client who happens to be out of the country, and
he had to get a CO to sell the house.
When I sent him the invoice, I could tell he wasn't enthusiastic at best.
I just recently started on my own (licensed for those who were wondering), so i thought I would be honest since the guy is not even here, and I did the following:
I itemized pricing for materials, labor, permit fees (and expediting fees since which normally the homeowner would get, but since he was out of the country, I had to go down to DOB 3 times) and OH&P.
Is itemizing something i should keep doing, and consider this client a tire kicker, or should I steer away from itemizing and assign a sell value to my hourly labor and material?
What is your experience? What works, what doesn't?
