For insurance you need to carry a mininum of 2mil

Anybody heard of this? I was just informed that 28 of my corperate accounts have been underbid by TruGreen for lawncare and ground maintenance by $5.
Is it common for your (or anyone's) accounts to share their vendors' bids? That's the only way I can see this scenario unfolding.

They started doing full maint contracts for commercial work only in my area 5 years ago. They use all sub contractors for the non weed and fert work. And the first jobs they started bidding were about 3 times what the other companies were bidding. Took their sales staff a while to know what prices and labor rates were for the new work.
