Did you figure in the cost on valves, boxes, wire, fitting, backflow, and equipment rentals if any?

Sounds way too low on the labor end.

How many days do you think it will take to install?

As a mininmum, You ought to be able to get 700 a day for a 2 man crew.

Your parts also seem high, you should look for a local wholesale supplier

right now I feel like everybody is getting the deal of the century. I just dont want to over bid and I want to be competitive so right now I am not over charging. I just bid a job yesterday 820 ft of poly pipe, 18 3500 series rotors, 8 stations, 10 rb 1804's and 300 ft of drip system. for a grand total 1100 dollers for parts and 600 labor. I did not mark anything up the people got it for my cost. I just don't know how to do mark up with out going over board.

i HAVE BEEN DOING SPRINKLERS FOR A FEW YEARS NOW BUT i WAS WORKING FOR SOMEONE. This year I went off on my own . So I am hoping to get some tips on how to price the many parts a sprinkler system consists of without feeling like I am over charging.
