    trying to figure a quote on a detailing job....

    Hey guys, I've been super busy lately promoting my detailing business and trying to get a customer base started. Anyway I had a guy contact me Tues night about doing a full complete interior and exterior detail on his custom peterbilt semi tractor. He wants "everything" done as well as all chrome and alum polished etc. Never done a semi tractor before and unsure of current condition of truck as he's over 2 hours away from me. So if I could get some input on how to figure pricing this job out that'd be awesome.

    Where I'm located in small town Iowa no one will probably pay a big market big city on price. Anyway, below are attached my current price sheet along with a picture of this guys rig. Please see if you can help me out some here.

    A complete exterior and interior detail, the works, the full boat, the whole enchilada.....................for me that would be a 3 day job and between $1500-2000. If your full detail is 250 for a car and 300 for a suv/van, that semi is about 3 times the size so I would say $900.

    I'm in north central iowa. This job I'm thinking will be in the 1500-2k range and I also agree its a full 3 day 40 hour job. I'm figuring 3 12 hour days plus a little. Just making sure my pricing wasn't out of line.

    Ok thought 1500-2000 was going to be high for your area.

    Re: trying to figure a quote on a detailing job....

    *Side note* Your prices look off.

    A premium detail is $125. Exterior detail only ($80) + Interior detail only ($40) = $120

    An ultimate premum detail is $250. Exterior ultimate premium ($140) + interior ultimate premium ($75) = $215

    The bundled package doesn't appear to save the customer money. I suggest increasing the prices on the individual packages so the bundle is more attractive.
