Underbidding is ruining our industry

This is the same issue in every town. Insurance is definitely something you want to shop for every time your policy is up. Almost all of us were the guy doing the under bidding when we first started. Keep your trucks and mowers exceptionally clean. Keep yourself and your employees in uniforms. I never work out of uniform. Stay as professional as absolutely possible. I swear it will pay off. It has for me. Bid for larger full service properties that the average "Johnny Come Lately" can't bid on. I love residential customers. They are very loyal once you get them. But the big properties can't just get any small timer to mow them.
