I get a call yesterday for a lawn care estimate so i go over today and he wants an estimate for a lawn apporx 16,000-19,000 sq ft. He just wants it cut and wanted a price he said that he wants to have the lawn cut every 2 weeks and i told him that i do not have any customers that i cut every 2 weeks. Since it was right next to another customer i do, i would do it. I told him that i would mulch it and he was OK with that. I then told him it would be $50 and he told me " You can stop right now that's crazy", he told me to leave. As i was walking back to my truck he throws his hands up in the air and said Scott will do it for $40 ( Scott is a local LCO that i get along with ). I did not respond to his comment but it did get me thinking, he was awfully upset that i was not cheaper than his current lawn care provider and why was he mad at me about it. The home is in a newly developed area and he has a 3 car garage 2 RV's brand new Chevy Colorado with 14 day plates and 2 other cars. NOW THE KICKER I just got home and called Scott and told him that his customer was price shopping and that i did not know it was his account till the customer mentioned his name. I told him the story above and he told me that he does charge $40 per cut but he cuts EVERY week. Now i just love it because he wanted to save $$ but he is spending more than i would charge. I am ALMOST hoping he calls back and wants me to cut for him because if he does it will now be $80 + bi-weekly and i am still not sure if i will take it. On second thought i will not take it i don't want to do work for this PITA EVER.
