In considering the posts from http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?threadid=3027 From last year, and putting together information to attract more commercial business, I've thought of a few more questions. Based on the posts I don't think we're ready to go after the big contracts ($100K+). I don't have crew foremen I feel strongly about, and have no clerical staff. So it'll have to be smaller stuff. But I'm still committed to expanding into this arena. I'm just not ready to sign up for Dodge reports, take on additional staff I can't yet support, etc. Also, bonding is an issue that I need much more info about. I've taken the previous advice to heart, but I'm wondering what anyone can advise about hunting 'baby' elephants (up to $50K). Can I worry less about putting up my house, etc as bonding collateral for the smaller stuff? Is there a good bonding reference book/manual anyone could direct me to? Also, is there a good reference on Davis-Bacon? I hear this a lot but am unfamiliar.
