Field Crew Billing
Hi everyone, with the approval of a new robotic (the companies first one), there was the questions of how much does it get billed out as for the 1 man crew running it, or even two if it differs for you. We are in Massachusetts and our rates for 2 man is around 165p/h. Any insight would be great!
Also just joined after stalking the forums for a while, y;all are great.
My 1-man crew rate is 80% of my 2-man rate.
Me and my robot collect at least 200 p/h.
Why should it be any less? You’re ultimately providing more efficient service when all factors are considered. In the end your clients’ cumulative costs will be lower. So why double down on cutting yourself out of the equation?
Jim is correct, a one person crew should not cost quite as much as a two person crew. The simple fact is one person is not as effective as two for certain tasks where a crew can split. Searching for pins, setting control and dipping MHs comes to mind. This is just from my 20+ years experience running robotics.
