i got in a real jam this fall being overbooked and not having the man power to do the work. so, i know this guy who has a tree service and he asked if i need help, its been working out great hes here every day, has his own equipment, and knows how to do the work. what bothers me a little is that if the customers come out to talk, he imediatly starts soliciting other work. he will say hey those gutters should really be cleaned, we can do it for $75, or he will tell them about a limb that should be trimmed or something. i also found out that he goes door to door and introduces himself and gives them a card and tells them he is in business and will do anything they need. a few of my customers have told me they have seen him around. i dont know if this is a bad thing or not. going door to door is not for me, what do u guys think of this practice? one thing i noticed about him is that every time he gives a price the customer beats him down and gets the work from him cheaper, and also he always gets the crap jobs, never any nice landscaping work or anything. could this be because they think hes "rif raf" for going door to door. i dont know, what do u all think?
