Are churches a good place to hit for accounts?

They can be tricky, some are willing to pay because they want everything looking really good and it's a tax write off for them as an expense, but some are very cheap and are always looking for freebies, so be careful, find out as much about the church as you can before bidding.

Most big churches around here have at least one if not more LOC as members so they will get the job and small churches will try to save money. I do my church but I do it myself on Friday, my crews only work 4 days, and it is all I do that day so I can putz around and do extra work. I would be hard pressed to make a profit if I put my guys on it- maybe just break even.

Gotta think that there is alot of weedeating if they have a cemetery. Seems like you would have to price it high. There is one next to my house they use a company have about 2 acres that gets mowed one acre oof gravestones. What do you think they charge?
