    Do you guys bid different man hour rates for a commercial acct vs a residential acct of similar size? We have a two-man team.

    Agreed..grass is grass. The only difference is that on the bigger commercial you can usually do a little better on the mowing price because they are usually larger. This means that you can get more grass cut in less time. You can charge less and still make the same per MNH.

    We usaully charge a little higher rate for commercial. They often call and need somthing done yesterday. They are willing to pay a little extra to have someone they can count on to get it done.
