Ok, I have a question that I have been dealing with for some time now and I thought this forum would be a good place to get some feedback. How many of you guys sub out your mulch jobs to a company who has a blower truck? If so, are there certain things the company does for you that you like/don't like? In other words, what do you like about the process and what do you think the company could do better? The reason I am asking this question is because I own/operate a mulch blowing company and have asked this question to some of my customers and I do not think I am getting their true thoughts. I figured since you guys do not know me from anyone else, you will give me straight answers. Although I have not done any jobs for anyone on this forum (maybe two or three of you guys), the rest could give me some insight on what other companies in their region are doing right (and wrong). I really am trying to gather ideas on how I can better service my landscaper customers. I have tried to take a look at my operation and find out my strengths and weaknesses (both my management and the inherent problems with the process), which can be difficult to really figure out on your own. I do think I offer a quality, cost effective service to customers who have difficult jobs to deal with. Difficult, hard to access jobs are no problem for us and we can generally do a job like this at a much lower cost than a landscaper can do it - thus, the landscaper can sub their hard-to-access jobs to us and make more money. I have tried to focus on marketing this concept and have had some moderate success, but not as much as I would like. What I have found is companies who keep good job cost records definitely understand this concept and want to sub all their mulch jobs to me, but unfortunately, most companies in my area (some relatively large) do not keep detailed records. What information could I give or send out that would help me get this point across? You guys always give straight, to the point comments and this is the reason I posted this question. As always, any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
