I have picked up more accounts in the past month than I did in March and April combined. I get about 1 - 3 calls a day looking for estimates on their properties because they all say the same thing, "We just want someone who is going to show up!"

So obviously these guys give there customers the run around for so long to the point where they call another LCO. I like this time of year!!!

That's a real eye opener! When you first started with the big machines and commercial sites was it tough to get business?

I noticed that just by putting my ad up on craigslist the phone's been ringing regardless. Does it more or less work any similar when you go commercial? I basically just want to have steady big time maintainance work as opposed to the odd landscape job here and there.
