That makes it hard to be competitive on the bidding. You want to make sure you put in enough money to make a profit yet not be so high that the low ball fly-by-night's beat every estimate. Having enough time to bid helps to be more competitive.
Good luck on the next one!
I hear you on that one. I bid a small house demo only a couple of miles from mine. The guy that won the bid (don't know him) has property that backs up to a road about 300 yards from my place. The small house is now a neat pile of rubble sitting back there now. It sits next to a nice stack of 12" thick concrete slabs he put out there from another job.
