    so what if he is cheap, what if he is not, customers think like you and they hire him thinking he is cheap and he actually isn't. Also what is cheap, as long as he is making a reasonable profit for him and his, who cares. So anyone who is cheaper then you you consider a lowballer?

    Look I charge $35.00 per hour per man hour.
    I just took a job from a guy who was charging $100.00 for a 8 hour day because he wasn't even showing up to do the work contracted and when he did he only did 30 minutes worth of grass cutting and that was it. So once I get the work caught up where he let it get overgrown my client is only looking at $70.00 per service call and I charge extra for landscape installs.

    No Bagger thank you for the support there. What he doesnt know is that our slogan says this " We provide Top Quality service at a Economical price". Plus we have a customer satisfaction guarantee. And I have kept all the customers I have retained. I got to advertise this year for the first time ever.
