Question: How do land surveyors most commonly charge for their services?
Top Answer (73% of 19 votes): Fixed fee.

Answer: Fixed fee
Explanation: We develop quotes primarily based on the size of property, type of work, field conditions and distance needed to travel, although there are times when we will contract on a time and materials basis. All in all we like to be upfront with our cost to our clients and avoid hidden fees of any sort.

Answer: Hourly rate
Explanation: There are many unknowns when undertaking a surveying project. This makes it difficult to have fixed pricing. Through many years of experience we can estimate cost fairly accurately but it is better for both us and clients that we bill hourly.
Skinner Land Survey Co., Inc.
Answer: Hourly rate
Explanation: Cost estimation is based on a $250 minimum to cover preliminary research and transportation costs. Add $0.15 - $0.18 per foot for marking boundary lines depending on terrain, location, and existing deed monumentation. $0.20 - $0.25 for completed surveys with plats and legal descriptions. Planning and zoning can increase costs. Disputed boundary lines complicate matters and can be expensive depending on research, court time, etc.

California Engineering & Surveying Inc
Answer: Fixed fee
Explanation: Most of my surveying is for residential property owners who, typically, prefer a fixed fee rather than a variable rate, so I always try to quote a fixed price for my services. Larger projects, such as land development & highway mapping, contain more variables & unknowns, so Land Surveying services are usually based on hourly rates with reimbursement for out of pocket expenses.
