    I hope you are prepared to work for next to nothing, if not for free.

    Thats the first sign to turn tail and run.

    Why should anyone negotiate YOUR prices?

    New guys love the national companies. They tell YOU what they are paying for the job.

    Everyone wants the big "commercial" accounts, so this works for the management company and the small lawn guy.

    The small lawn guy gets the jobs that he could never get on his own, and the management company makes a fortune by getting it done cheap.

    I wouldn't go lower than the top three. I did work for one that went bankrupt. Only lost less than a grand, but it still leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I do work for U.S. Maintenance. Slow pay, tried to deduct additional 4% from invoices, etc. Pain in the azz. good luck.
