I Have been doing maintenance since 97 so i have seen some good times and seen some really Crappy ones. About 2 years ago I almost lost my butt due to a bad employee, long story short made gestures to a female customer, was my lead foreman/sales guy and when i got rid of him he tried to overtake alot of my properties. I hung low for awhile as there was nothing i could do because of not signing a non compete clause and alot of customers dropped me because he cut my prices way low. Anyways I am now rebuilding and picked up a great contract this year about a 30 acre business park total land, parking lot and buildings. I can do this myself in about 25 to 30 hours a week only getting help from guys i know as needed Now this company is wanting me to travel about and hour away to do another property of theirs that is about the same size maybe a little bit bigger. Currently I have the equipment to handle such jobs 2 walkers, 2 bobcat walk behinds, a Z, little wonder 10 hp, billy goat, 773 skid steer etc and i can fit it in my schedule but it is gonna require atleast 2 or 3 ore guys.i figure it is probably gonna take 4 guys 2 days aweek to maintain including myself. Guess my question is what do you think is growing too fast. I wouldn't't be taking on anymore initial expenses because the equipment is all paid for but I would be putting myself in the position to have to go from being solo to hiring employees. In the past this has been PITA for me. Anyone been in this position? can you give me some advice what you would do???
