There are plenty of services you can offer home owners in your area above and beyond lawn care. Why not also consider offering gutter cleaning services. That is what this one lawn care business owner decided to offer. He spent some time designing a door hanger to promote the service and also created an estimate form that he shared with everyone on The Gopher Lawn Care Business Forum. Check out how he did this and in one day attracted over $450 in new work.
He wrote “I just got the lawn care business book, GopherHaul Extreme Lawn Care Business Tips. 150 pages into it, I find myself picking up ideas left and right. I, like many other newbies, need some work for the fall and early winter months. So in the book I took the gutter idea to the next level. I sat down for an hour and designed these templates to help me market and estimate gutter cleaning jobs. I hope these gutter cleaning estimate templates can help out others in my same position.
How to utilize the gutter cleaning inspection form
The boxes to the right are to keep track of the measurements. The 1st floor, and 2nd floor are separated considering the difference in price. I broke it down this way to let the customer know how we came to the bid price. If you just say ‘it will cost you $XX without showing the measurements can cause a customer to put their defenses up and I don’t want that to happen. A relaxed customer is more ready to buy that a defensive one.
The notes section on the template is for any damage or repairs that are noticed while doing the inspections. Leaks, loose brackets, etc. The rectangles are used to point out where the damage is located on the 1st or 2nd floor. All of this is better written down, just in case after you leave they want to check it for themselves.
Once I had my gutter cleaning door hanger made, I went door to door in my area. From that marketing, I have two gutter cleanings today. One for $165, and another for $105. Not to mention the $60 1/2 hr mulching job, and a light pruning for $75 I also signed up. I got a gutter repair job as well, which involves replacing an end cap and bending out a section for $50. That is $455 in two days all because of my door to door marketing! I’ll take it. Without your book I doubt I would have thought of it.
Try these gutter cleaning templates out and go out there marketing your services. You can download them in this post. There is nothing stopping you from getting a lot more work. Don’t wait for it to come to you, you have to go find it.”
