In one sentence or less, list a defining characteristic of a scrub.
The guys who go door to door and offer to cut your lawn for $5 less then your currently being charged.....without even asking what your paying right now. That's a scrub.
WOW! I could't have said it any better myself!
Might I add...Someone who brings down the integrity of our profession thru indiscriminate means.
Cheap ignorant home owners who don't care about quality, insurance, and legit businesses make scrubs and keep them thriving.
not how i define it. the above for me is a lowballer.
A company may lowball but may still be registered, incorporated, insured, licenced, etc..
LCO SCRUB: someone who runs an LCO but is not registered, insured or licenced to do the work.
LCO lowballer: someone who undercuts the price of a competitor, with no regard to market forces, company revenue streams or company costs, simply to get the job.
Anyone from this site who responds to a post calling other people scrubs.. and pulling something about "5 months behind in payments" out of their A$$
And the bell rings for Round 2!!!!! TSG throws a quick jab..........
You might be a scrub if................ your idea of a blower is mom's kitchen broom.

I must confess. I used a broom my first year in the biz. But it wasn't Mom's.

Scrubs are the "flea market" of lawn care. Stop worrying about them and start running your businesses.
