    I have a friend that does 99% installs and has about 10 people that wanted lawn mowing by him. (they asked if he mowed lawns too). he has asked me to mow for him. I already have a LCO and doing it full time. Would you do the mowing and let him do the cleanups and installs? He would have me charge whatever i wanted but just the mowing. My town is real small and all of us lcos pretty much know eachother and dont step on others feet or stab others in the back.(well there are those guys too. like the scrubs).

    I personally don't see any reason not to. I would though put them on contract with me and handle the billing and all and not let them think that "you were working for him".

    I agree with everyone else, if he is going to get you all these jobs, I wouldn't worry about not doing the clean ups and installs.

    I have to agree with everyone else also. 10 accounts just handed to me, at my price? I wouldn't have to think twice.

    I would not even have to think about it. I agree with everyone else, take them and make some $$$.

    As long as your getting your rate to mow them I say take them especially if your schedule isn't full. If you don't take them someone else will.
