Yesterday, we come home from mowing and check the answering machine. Potential client says "my name is____, my number is ___ & I need a price on lawn service." The message was left at 515pm. I call them back at 630pm same day. He says "Oh, thanks but I already got someone." I said "didn't you just call 1 hour ago?" He says "yes, but someone already called & they will be out to cut tommorrow" Seems to me that the guy that is going to be cutting this property called the client and the client said "how much?" and the lawn guy says "$25 I'll be there tomorrow" "oh yea, what's your address?" Give me a break! I measure EVERY lawn before I give my price. That is the only fair way for both contractor and client. Talk about SCRUBS! I only hope this guy calls me back in a few weeks and I get the opportunity to charge a bit more than I would have otherwise. I keep records of all calls, especially the ones that get the neighbor boy to do it after they find out what a professional lawn service costs. Thanks, needed to vent.
