I need help bidding on a apartment complex; Could anyone please show me some examples of what to put in a contract. I did a long extensive search but, found nothing on what to charge. My equipment is as follows: 48" hydro walkbehind, 21" rear drive, and a 21" push, I will post pictures and the approx size later when I go over there. :)

Thanks in advance. :)

Chris

Here's the specs:

The lawn has 1412 feet of edging, (to be done as needed)

It's 44,395 sf and about 45 minutes of trimming. mowing about (1 hour and 15 minutes)

How much would you charge JUST for mowing and trimming?

And how much JUST for edging?

Thanks in advance.

I am posting pictures:

The reason it looks like $#%* is because the sprinkler were just fixed this week.

If that were here in NC, I'd do it for between 80-100. This is all by going from the pictures, course I could mow that in 35 min or less. Good luck.

My contract is below please tell me what you think. Thank You

I got this from Jim Lewis and revised it; I won't take credit for work I didn't create.

Again, I am not really into commercial stuff at all. So check with the others here who are. But I would think you'd want to specify the actual duration of the contract. Most commercial contracts go for one year.

Currently, the wording under the Duration area is a little skewed. I'd consider revising the sentence, "The set duration for this contract is the property manager (or person in charge of payments) must give a 15 day notice or there will be a $50- early termination fee. "

That isn't really a duration. That is just an agreement in regards to terminating the contract. If you for sure don't want any specific term (e.g. one year) then I would re-word it like this, " There is no set term for this contract and service will be on a month-to-month basis as long as both parties are satisfied. If one party does become unsatisfied to the point where they would like to end the contract, it is agreed that the party will give at least XX days notice before terminating the agreement." And I'd make XX at least 30 days - not 15.

Just my 2 cents.

We would charge between $100 to $150.

We do have a contract with a appartment complex that is a two year contract and the price is locked in.
