    So I spent this past week beating the street and found a whole bunch of commercial lots just off the high-way near my house. Ten out of the sixty I stopped at would like a bid for summer cuts.
    I took down as much information as I could from the prospect customer and made my self a little chart at home of all ten business. I have numbers for all of them and I'm getting excited to send them all out.
    Brings up my question. Does any one have a nice form they use to submit bids.
    If I get the bid what does a real contract look like and entail?
    Thanks, Andy:dizzy:

    Lawncaresuccess.com one of the sponsors of this forum. Use their materials and love them. Their proposal\bid form is great. Just finished filling one out for a new customer.:)

    Andrew,


    Normally what I do is incorporate two into one. I write up the bid listing the terms and the specs. Then at the end of the bid, I have a space at bottom where I sign it. I also leave a space for the property managers (if they accept) to sign it also. Thus making it a contract at the signing.

    Sometimes they write additions on the bid. I make the revisons sign it and return it back to them for their signature.
