hello first let me start I guess by saying I have already been reading diffrent threads through the search function. I should also tell you that in reading some, there seems to be a lot different pricing in Vermont then in most of your areas, depending on who and what the jobs are for people around here work for as little as $12.00 to 35 or $40. Maybe it is because of the market and there is a lot of people mowing and landscaping in the general area. anyway, I have been doing lawns my self and working for another company the next town over on my "days off" from my 40 hr job for 10 + years now. between mine and theres we have 40 accounts, some have been accounts for my friend since 1981!! so we have the residenial area covered. my question and concern is, I have a chance to bid on a job from the town it consist of 2 cemetery jobs (Rather good size to), a hand full of small traffic medians and a lawn at the town hall. I have read and kept my self awake at night going over this and coming up with ways to do it and etc etc. there will be a mandatory meeting in a couple of weeks to get the exact job descriptions. the job is from July 2002 to june 2004. and the bid must be broke down by each job. I have never bid before nor have i done a cemetery, usually we/I have someone call, and I go and tell them a price and they ask "when can you start" or get the H@@@ out of here your crazy !! so I don't make this any longer can anyone give some advise so I may sleep at night for the next few weeks, on what I should do and how to do it.
