Got a call today from a going to be new customer, new to the area, wants me to come by his house and give him a bid. If he likes the bid he will have me do one mow, and see the quality of course. Then he said he is going to talk to other LCO's and have them do the same thing. Have any of you ran into this? Sure i've ran into people scouting prices but I've never had to compete for the job. To tell you the truth I personally would do the same thing if I had to hire out my lawn. I guess its like word of mouth advertising but the customer is seeing first hand.
