I went to bid on this large commercial job and when I got there another lawn care company was already bidding. So I jumped right in with the price i would do it for while he said he would call them back and let them know. They liked me and my bid. The next day when I started working a parade of lawncare people kept riding through the subdivision. I guess the customer had called many and let them all come to give back up bids. I would say 10 or 15 companies. They seem to like my work so I am keeping the job. But i dont think I would have had it if i had hesitated or shown up late. Just too many people in lawncare right now in this area.
