The cost of an estimate is calculated automatically based on the services and equipment you've selected. To ensure that the calculation is correct and consistent throughout all estimates, you should specify the following:

price per hour for different employee roles (e.g. groundsman/ climber etc);
price per hour for the equipment and vehicles (e.g. pickup truck, wood chipper etc);
the service markup.
