    i turned it in today ,it would be a great job for us .the property manager said they where happy with their current lco ,but they would look it over and discuss it with the owner .i believe its going to be lowball cheap or priced right ,and if it s priced right ,we would have a shot at getting it

    using your description I came up with a much higher price. cutting can run upwards of 100 per hour or 1 to 2 dollars per minute. But this pricing is in my economic area and probably cannot be of any use to you, I most likely couldn't get the job with this kind of pricing. I am very careful taking on commercial property's getting paid can be a bucket of red tape especially if the property is not locally owned and despite a clearly written agreement with a crystal clear payment schedule..... good luck!
