    Hey Everyone,

    All of my business has been and is now residental accounts. I am thinking about expanding to commercial accounts ie. dealerships, banks, etc. But before I start marketing for it, I have thought about how I am going to answer thier question of, How much is this going to cost? I am assuming that they want a total price for maintence, pinestraw, fertilizer, pruning, etc. then broke into monthy or yearly cost. So, I was wanting to know is there a systematic way of bidding on large accounts?
    Since, I do all residental account I usually do not have to break everything down or tell them an exact number of pinestarw bales, number of bags of fert. etc.
    SO, again I just do want to over/under bid. Any suggestion on getting started?
    Thanks Travis
