I just got a call from a customer that I got new 6 months ago. The yard was horribe, I had to haul in dirt to fill in holes and plant grass and fert. The yard is now great looking. He tells me that thier yard was so bad that they had to get it cut this week, I tell him I was going to discuss it with him Monday about going from eow to every week because of all the rain and most of my other clients have agreed to this untill the rain quits and growth slows back down, He then tells me that they found someone who will do it for 25 dollars. I was doing it for 40 and it took an 1:35 to do it. I asked him did the new person have license and insurance and he said he did not care he was just trying to find cheaper! I had just wrote out a check for 468 for my insurance to mail is what really got me. I know I sound the most negative of this board but dam it, this is aggravating. Ive lost 4 this week to these lowballers. I had put my truck in the paper Tuesday for sale trying to cut some bills lose. The only thing I know to do is go back down to bare bones equipment and no license and insurance so I can start cutting for these dirt cheap prices. Anyone else having this problem this time for the year? Im really trying to maintian an upbeat attitude but Im really starting to feel beat again. How the heck can you cut a yard this size for 25?
