    It all depends, I have had some managers say go ahead and give me an estimate, then I sent it and heard nothing back, some have said we already have a contract...Right now would be the ideal time to do it if your going to do it, most sign contracts in Jan-Feb...All you can do is hope you'll get some..good luck to you

    Around here, most managers sign 80 to 90% of their lawncare contracts for the next year in sept. They need to plan longterm.

    Some sign in jan/feb and those guys are either disorganized or just late doers...procrastinators. You have a chance with a small bunch, just be aggressive. I've posted many times before to send EACH PROPERTY manager in an office a separate faxed sheet with only a few line...ONLY A FEW LINES as they don't have much time to read...remember, they're already late in booking a contractor compared to the "organized" mgrs who do it in Sept...lol

    Good luck..:laugh:
