Well I just got the news on one of the commercial properties I bid on for this years lawn care. Well the answer was NO. This was 5 medium sized commercial buildings and a 3-year contract. My bid came in at around $45,000 per season. So I asked the decision maker what was the reason I didn't get the bid. He said " well obviously price was part of the decision." So I said " well how much of a price difference was there" Thinking I might still have a shot. He said the company that got the job came in at $18,000 per season! I was shocked. So I said "WOW that's low." He said " No kidding, they really came in with some good bids this year. I was surprised to see that myself". Then I asked him if they were the only ones that low, or were the other LCO's closer to my bid. He said "There were 2 others that had low bids but most were around yours." I did get one more tidbit out of him too. He told me Land Care USA was at $47,000. So that made me feel good about the whole thing. I know who the company is that got the bid. They have been doing these properties for a few years. Maybe they know something I don't. All I can say is every thing works out for the best. Ya win some, ya lose some. But if your gona win some they better be at your price.
