Enlighten the original poster as to how you determine what a windshield list price is then. Do you just use cost plus? or is it how you feel each day as to what you charge? Do you look at the make and model and think of how much money the consumer will pay? Do you give senior citizens a discount off your feelings for the days installs?
We use Nags and seems to work just fine until someone asks us to price match with the moron who thinks $70 on top of cost is better than his first job at McDonalds. He doesn't have to pay as much for cleansing wipes for his acne so he makes even more now.
Benchmark was intended to be revenue neutral & it isn"t. We are now giving 100% off old nags this is a total scam with the big companies billing Guarantee average & the little guys are ripped off with using nags. I recommend using a different system. Nags & mitchel are one that should say it all.
Cost Plus is the fastest most efficient way to price your work. I could care less what Nags says...what's it cost me, how far do I have to go and how difficult is the job is what I use to determine pricing.
