You deserved to be heavily fined according to your bud (Terra) , Terra should have mentored you as he knows better than to ride around doing commercial work and not displaying decals.
your not telling the truth, go back and read your posts from the past and it sure doesnt sound like a homeowner to me.

I was wondering what everyone gets for installs per yard average home we are doing is 15000-20000 sq ft


What does everyone charge.

Ohhhh boy, better hope there terms are net 5. That is some big dollars to have sitting out for 60-90 days. 350 homes would avarage 3 yards a day sprinklers, graded and sodded. Back in 2000-2001 majestic did a TON of pulte work and there sprinklers crew did three systems a day and there grade/ sod crews would do 4-5 yards a day. They had more Mexicans running around than u knew what to do with. Two grade foreman and a sprinkler for man

Either way, you've made it seem like you are either a residential posing as an LCO or you are lying about doing commercial work.

If there is a misunderstanding, it's because of the way you posted your encounter in the context of the thread.
What is this "commercial work" you two are referring to? Do you perform duties in trade for currency or not? If yes do you NEED your vehicle to perform these duties? If so your vehicle needs to be registered and plated with the State of Michigan with commercial vehicle plates and also needs commercial vehicle insurance coverage.

I'm so glad I roughed it out this spring. I was so close to selling all my ****, and finding a job.

But my hard work is finally starting to pay off!!!! As some of you know, I pursue the high end resi work, all inclusive everything types.

This spring I quit advertising thinking I was gonna fold up shop, as it was seeming impossible to land a full route of my niche type jobs. I had two of them, hoping to have 5. I now have 7 of them. Now I'm scrambling to figure out how I will cover them all They all came from referral, and were bid right

Sorry, had to let my excitement out somewhere
