I have been in the business for only two years. Right now I mow only residential properties with a 36 Ex-mark Metro. I want to upgrade and start bidding on commercial property for the next season and have some questions. * What types of things should I have in a contract thats different from residential customers? * How much insurance should I have? * How much does appearance help IE: uniforms, enclosed trailers, equipment cleanliness? * And most importantly how do I price? The same as residential (I try to get $40.00/man hour.) or do I try for more and have a residential price list and a commercial price list? I just don't know if paying for new bigger equipment and possibly hiring employees will be worth it or if I should just stay a one man show with small accounts. Thanks for any input anyone has.
