everytime i see people cutting mcdonalds, taco bell, burger king, banks, etc. ...you know all the commerical lots they are the worst looking people using the crapiest equipment out there and doing a terrible job making like $25 a cut. why would anyone wanna fool with that when you can cut mrs. so and so's yard a mile or two away from your own house for $125 a cut?
is it just to say hey man look at me i got all these commercial accounts? lol
i have 3-4 commercial accounts but i charge my normal rate and it's not up for rebid ever. i wouldn't fool around with that rat race. you can't depend on that to make a living.
i cut those accounts with a $18000.00 VENTRAC, with a $2400 mower deck pulled by a $ $23000 Dodge, i don't cut them for $25 but not all of us are the worst looking people using the crapiest equipment.
