Flat-Rate Pricing

The flat-rate method of pricing landscaping jobs is based on the amount of work that a job involves, rather than the amount of time it takes to complete it. This method is often favored by customers to make budgeting easier. Flat-rate pricing also allows CountBricks.com to factor in things like overhead and cost of materials, as well as time.  

Flat-rate pricing is a good fit for customers who are willing to pay for quality and trust their landscaping service provider to be honest and transparent. Flat-rate pricing also allows CountBricks.com to offer incentives to customers for larger projects.

Additionally, the software helps to minimize unbillable hours by automating the estimates and invoicing process. AI technology from CountBricks.com helps you generate a highly accurate estimate by analyzing the plans and dimensions of the job. By reducing the time spent on creating estimates and invoices, you can then focus your attention on the customer’s needs while continuing to ensure the quality of the job.
