Equipment mark up


I just received the 2012 price list from my supply house, I am looking to see if there is a standard mark up or recommended mark up for residential equipment. I usually use a .7 markup but I'm curious to see if there is a more used standard? Thanks

Re: Equipment mark up


Varies by what the company needs.

Can be hard to get 70% on a $30,000.00 chiller

Re: Equipment mark up


Yes I do understand that, but i was looking for more of a general idea. I mean if the residential equipment cost me $2100 normally i would use my cost+tax/.7=$ 3258.00 so using this formula i was wondering if I was in line t=with the industry standard?

I know of no industry standard. I know of companies that only add 45% to equipment cost. An others that do 100%. Depends on how much money they want to make.

While I sell equipment. I don't sell the equipment. I sell the job. And the job will determine how much mark up I have on the equipment.

I generally prefer to be one of the higher priced guys. But in commercial, it doesn't work that way.

Do you know what you min operating cost is per day?

Re: Equipment mark up


I think you are going in the right direction Beenthere all contractors need to know primarily what their companies cost to do business is(example: vehicles, labor, fuel, insurances, loans and so on), this will give you the mark up required to brake even then you add your desired profit onto that. It is different for every contractor.

Re: Equipment mark up


Mine is a sliding scale. Really cheap stuff, or refrigerant, I do 100%. But as it gets more expensive, my multiplier goes down more and more.
