Where I live there is no money in commercial work unless you are a larger company dealing with volume and don't mind making pennies on the dollar. I am asked every spring to bid on different commercial properties, at this point I dont even bother.

This winter I finally dabbled into snow removal through a friend for some work at an hoa. The guy asked me about taking over the lawn maintenance. When I found out what the current bid was I just politely declined. I am simply not comfortable with the low margins. The residential market is still fairly strong here. To outfit a crew with expensive equipment to run around all day does not make any sense. I could easily make more money with a couple of employees in a different line of work, with a lot less overhead
