need some advice

So I'm going to be going out of town for a week at the end of June. I'm a smaller operator that just has one mow crew and some part time landscape help. I have a guy that's got a bigger company then mine and he said he would be willing to mow about 20-30 of my weekly residential customers. He would be using all of his equipment, trucks, trailers. What percentage do you guys think I should pay him? I have an idea of what I'm thinking but I want some other opinions. Thanks

Pay him whatever you get. That is what I do. He is using his equipment and his gas. You are lucky to have somebody you can trust to step in for you.

Absolutely, give him 100%, it is his mowers, fuel, time, etc. that is nice you have someone to help you out here and there. That would be nice to have that option if I got behind or couldnt do it for some reason. Now, if he was using your equipment and truck, I would give him like 50 or 75%.

I personally wouldn't let anyone touch my customer's lawns
unless I knew the person real good, I'd rather chance losing
customers over it not being cut lol

Sorry to be this way.
