I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia.  Just new to water restoration.  Pricing is something that is stressing me out.  I only have a general idea of what to charge and how to charge.  Anyone have a price list I could look over to give me a better idea of what to charge? 
Anything you email me will be kept confidential and I will use your prices as a guide.

If you are going to be doing work for insurance claims than you will need to use the xactimate program.
Could somebody just clean my carpets!

I know about the program. Did you buy the professional or standard?  Will your claims be rejected if you dont use xactimate?

I used the Bluebook program for over 20 years and never once had a claim or invoice rejected by an insurance company.

Most insurance companies require an Xactimate type format. I deal with Preferred Vendor Programs daily. Xactimate 27 is awesome. You can use what ever you like. Keep in mind that some programs do require Xactimate and certain versions. I write with 25 & 27.

If you're working with insurance you need to learn about how to use the Xactimate format. If you're working for the homeowner, then you just have to bid what you think is fair. Different areas charge different amounts. We get 4X more in Atlanta than we do in Boise.

These guys have it right with the Xactimate format, but I have one little add- continue to survey. Survey your competitors and your clients and I am sure you will wind up with a good and acceptable price list.

Our program utilizes Craftsman Data Company prices, but you can add as many line items and prices as you wish. Comes with all required forms.
