First bid im doing for a local housing complex. Its mainly apartments and a few townhomes in a row. I am sure i can handle the job next season. A company came in today "saturday" to cut the place and had 3 dump F350s/550s, a rack body f450, mulching crew, two 24' enclosed trailers with 4 mowers, 4 trimmer guys, two edger guys and looked like a crew boss lol. I mean common, just me and my helper can do this place in about 6hrs or less so im not sure why theyd have two saturday crews out here, or 3. Are jobs like this usually bid out "cheap" or do they pay well? Altough i would cut it myself with two other guys and one truck/trailer weekly, is it out of the question to assume $900 for a job that eats up 18 man hours? Im figuring on $50 per man hour since there is no driving time once were at the site. I can average $100 easily with JUST myself and my one worker at almost all residential lots 3 small $30~ lots in one hr all the way to $100-$155 large residential or commercial properties in 50-70 minutes worth. Am i in the ball park here or is the current LCO probably doing this for $500 ?
