This happened every time I see a bid opening… the sky is the limit! woohoo!

so you would think they would go out of business because they don't have any work? Right?

But they do.

How do they get it?
I'm thinking they chose their prices by throwing a hatchet at a dart board to pick a number.
We have a company around here like that and they are the largest one. I don't get it. Snow plowing they charged 100 for a quicky down and back on a 300ft drive. Took less than 10 min of their time. Some of my rates ate begininng to be like that, but only for property management companies where I know the job is super short term and I am always on the phone putting out some fire.
