    Hey, I wanted to get some Commercial account for the next season because of my new mower.. When would you guys send out letters to these companies? In the winter time.. or around February or March? And WHY.... I was thinking around February because that's when most companies look for people to get their property maintained. Thanks!

    First, you will not get a commercial contract without AT LEAST $1,000,000 liability policy. They usually like someone who can provide pictures and another 2-3 commercial references from previous years. You will need to show you have enough equipment to do the work if all of your main equipment breaks down..

    As far as letters, I've found they just end up in the garbage. You need to go into the buildings and talk to the maintenance managers. Any other way and your just another LCO who wants to mow the place..

    good luck :cool:
