Hello, i am new this is my first commercial contract and this business owner has been changing the terms of the proposal and the contract several times...until i am left with almost nothing. started out he wanted a bid for sept. oct. and nov. He wanted lawn care, weed removal, fertilization, and a full fall cleanup service along with bush and tree pruning. i got a quote together, by estimating my time and materials costs, and turned it in. i quoted 11 lawn cuts, 5 weed removal services, 2 fertilization applications, lawn aeration, and full fall cleanup. about a week later he set an appointment with me to go over my proposal and he pretty much divided everythig out until he had it all on a per time basis per my package rates on the proposal. then he said the frequency was too much, he wanted 7-8 lawn cuts, 2-3 weed removal services, and he did not want aeration. so he had already come up with a lower price assuming that stuff was taken out. I still needed the job, so i said i would agree to make the changes and resubmit the proposal. i did and then another week goes by, then he sets up another appointment. keep in mind by now we are halfway thru september already and i still have not yet started work there.. well this next meeting he cut more out. he said he only wanted 1 cut in september and 3 cuts in oct, and 2 in nov. i said ok. he asked me to get him a contract and copy of my insurance with him listed as an insured, so i did, got it back to him and when we went to sign the contract he handwrote at the bottom that he has to approve all services before i start and he will contact me when he wants the services done, and he made me initial that before he would sigh it. well, today he calls me and says he changed his mind on the weed control and he will have his building maintenance guy just do it so i should just do the lawn and fertilizer. how do you guys deal with a customer like this. i may have been wrong but i figured a business owner who told me up front he wanted the lawn looking top notch and wanted my best service, would have me do everything as i thought it needed....but instead ended up bidding out the job, probably found i was cheapest, and now is widdling me down to hardly anything. he wants a bid for next season too, any suggestions?
