It all depends on size of sq ft, the condition of the floor and if you have to move furniture or people will be around. .35 will be the lowest if it's all open , large sq ft or multiple locations. .70 cents is the max I've gone
It's completely dependent upon the job. From .30 to over $1. What has to be moved? Some rooms are too small to use autoscrubber. Some have areas that need to be taped off and protected. Other stores are wide open and easy. I estimate based on my time. I avoid pricing by square feet except for large grocery or hardware stores.
We take into consideration if the request came from a current customer or a new potential new client, the size of the job and location. We always try to cut our customers a deal but its hard sometimes because they don't know the work that goes into the process. We've charged up to $1 but would consider a lower rate depending on the condition of the VCT and whether we would have to move furniture, hire extra hands, rent additional equipment etc...Whatever you decided just be sure to include your tax
I say if you feel it's time to raise your rates --- it IS time to raise your rates. I know I'm reluctant to raise prices for fear of loosing customers but, Ya gotta make money . I usually only do slight increases on our long time customers and bid new jobs for more. The last thing you want is to raise your prices but have no one to send a bill to
Btw we do a lot of VCT and we are anywhere from .18 sf to .75 per sf . It largely depends upon how many sf we are doing . Jobs over 10,000 sf+ are ( of course) closer to .20 per sf . Average commercial job is .38 -.42 per sf
I have started adjusting prices based on my work load. Basically supply and demand. I don't want to grow my company any larger. So if we have enough work I am going to raise prices in small to moderate amounts. If I wanted to grow then I would be a little cheaper. Just make sure that whatever you desire to do relating to price, you can maintain the quality that meets or exceeds expectations.
