Commercial Bid

Just got a message on my phonefrom a plaza I bid on and I did not win. typically they inform me where i was as far as my bid verse others and these guys did not. Would it be unprofessional if I called back and asked where I was?

Yeah probably. I would call and say if you ever need a backup lawn, landscape, etc. person, give me a call. That might open them up to tell you anyways.

I wouldnt feel bad or worry about it. You didnt get the job anyway. Most places will tell you anyway if you ask. Thats how they keep the bids low. Every year the bid gets lower and lower.
