    :dizzy: I just got done looking at a possible customers property and am racking my brain over this bid. My estimate for all of the work that she wants done is going to be about $6000, then about $400-500 a week for maintenance. My dilema is that some of the work is probably more than I am equipped to do. So, I guess my question is, do I just write up the bid for the work that I can do, or do I consider possibly sub-contracting some of the work out. Help!!!!!! Thanks to All in Advance....

    i would look to sub the work out that you cannot do. the customer only wants to deal with one person. sub-contractors can make or break you, be sure their work is as good if not better than yours. in my yearly contracts, it states i may use sub-contractors at my discretion. too dry up here MN, need some rain, if you can believe that.
