What is your closing percentage?

Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by Florida Gardener, Jan 19, 2013.

  1. If you give 10 bids for landscape and garden care, what is your closing rate? I only want to know from guys that do full maintenance. No install, irrigation, or mow only.

    It's dropped over the last couple of years from about 50% to around 10%.....the CL lowballer effect. I have fixed costs and can't compete. My commercials remain steady at around 60%. I think this is because I maintain my insurance, Workman's comp, and bonding ( I'm a contractor too so we can do fences and decks).

    We're close to 50% I believe for residential and 0% for commercial. That zero isn't exaggerated either. We can't land commercial work at all due to the excessive amount of lowballers in this region.
