    I recently purchased a 48" Exmark metro W/B and i'm interested in aquiring some larger commercial accounts. How do I go about approaching a large business with a bid? Something like a hospitol or an apartment complex. Or even a resturant. Is there a certain time of year to approach somebody with a bid. How do I write out a bid? Do you est by how long you think it will take you. Who do I talk to? Any help would be greatly appriciated. I really think this will help the business takeoff.

    Hi ChadA,

    We have been very lucky to have a few LCO's send us their commercial bid/contract forms. You can see them here. I hope they help.
