Pricing

When you contact us, we will arrange a visit as part of a no-obligation, free quotation.  In this phase, we will consult with you on the treatment required and the area to be covered.  After discussing options with you, we will provide a quotation so you know the cost of the task.

All clients will be charged a 50% deposit prior to work commencing if they are providing the chemicals required. Alternatively, a 75% deposit will be charged to all customers if Drone Commander Australia is supplying the chemicals required.

= $47 per Ha x 10 Ha

= $470 for 10 Ha


PER HOUR RATE (for linear tasks like table drains or spot spraying).

$100 per hour on task for the drones.

$80 per hour on task for ground spraying equipment.

Other applicable charges:

Travel

TRAVEL

We charge out travel at $1 per Km.  We use the ‘whereis’ website to determine road travel distance.

Our intention is to minimise travel cost for all, so where we can relocate for a specific group of spraying operations, travel will be calculated from our deployed base location.  This will be discussed with you prior to the task.

Job Preparation

SETUP, CLEANUP and PACKUP

$100 per day on task will be added to your invoice for these peripheral but necessary activities.

Charges that may be applicable:

Chemicals

If you require us to provide the chemical(s) or other product for your spray or spreading application, we will charge these to you at cost plus a small administrative fee.  We will discuss this with you prior to the task.

Complex Chemical Handling

Some chemicals (such as Gramoxone etc) require the significant deployment of PPE and other risk management elements involving additional time and expense to ensure a safe and effective spraying operation.  This is likely to involve an additional fee to cover specialist equipment (at cost) and the additional time involved (at the hourly rate).  If required, this will be included in the quote.

Tast Complexity Fee 

Drone Commander Australia reserves the right to charge an additional fee based on factors impacting the complexity of the operation. This includes but is not limited to factors such as terrain, obstacles and livestock in the direct area of application. Drone Commander will communicate with you should this additional fee of $80 per additional hour be necessary.
