Yeah. A lot of guys make an initial investment in vehicles and equipment and fail to consider recouping those costs. I have a friend who makes it his goal to bid 20% less than the competition and to make it up in volume. I'd rather be 20% over the competition and sell myself on quality and service. He has a lot of work but there are times when he can't afford to put gas in his trucks without asking his wife for some money (she has an unrelated retail business). The other thing I see is guys starting out under capitalized, to the point that a $500 truck or equipment repair puts them out of business.
