Default 1/2 emt conduit run

Hi everyone I am new to this site and I am glad I have came across it!! Here is a little detailed question for a price on conduit/lighting job.

12-120v led strip lights supplied by owner
120'-1/2"emt
12- 4x4 boxes with covers
12-1/2"emt nipples 4"long (nipple from JB to light fixture)
misc-1/2" conn/coup/starps (cast or stainless steel don't matter)
t90#12 to feed lighting

*note*
assume feed is already in first JB

*Breakdown*
work is to be done 17' in air on a lift (lift supplied by owner) clear path on a pan deck. Pretty much the pipe run will be straight and a JB will be placed where each light will be (every 8-10 feet) and a nipple into the light (12 in total). nothing fancy.. I was told for the conduit run
(with matts..emt/conn/coup/straps wire/screws marr) along with the wire pull and JB connections (not including led light mount or light connection) would be around $1000 per 100' of 1/2 emt which covers cost's such as any bends/pull elbows/LB'S clean up/set up/and wire pull/mounting of boxes&covers. Again this is coming from someone who works for himself meaning his overhead is pretty much lower than an owner having people working for him.

As for the 12 led lights about 30min per light complete mount with connections for about 6hours for all 12?

Is this a fair price for something of this scope?

It's a one-day job.

(X) Materials + (one-day) Labor + risk factor =

You must price to make a profit -- not to win the bid.

You don't WANT profit-less jobs.

I hate it when people are not honest in their profiles. Well maybe not honest is a bit harsh but is it that hard to fill them out properly?
When you trust someone it is waay easier to help them.

I was going to post some snotty comment about not knowing that anything existed East of Pickering (for the Centre of the Universe people), but then I looked at an official map of the GTA and was surprised how much they have expanded their empire...

All the way East to Clarington, West to Burlington and North to Georgina

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1a/Greater_toronto_area_map.svg

So now my snotty comment would be along the lines of “oh, I did not know there was anything East of Clarington. What is this Ottawa you speak of?”



Cheers
John

I always plan for an hour per fixture. Despite the owner supplying the fixture, you still have to uncrate them, bring them to the location, etc. Also this accounts for the ones you need to go back to because they are not level, loose lamps, etc.

Cheers
John

This might sound strange, but I don't really know.
