I have been residental mowing for the past 2 years and ready to step up to commercial mowing. I am new to the bidding process so I am looking for tips. I mean how do you guys come up with the figures. Do you look at it and try to set yourself up for a certain amount an hour. Or do you measure and add it up by acres. I mean I know you have to add in gas costs and other factors. If someone could please tell me how they much they charge and how they add it all up it would really help me. Any other advice on how to outbid people or any other tips on getting these big jobs would help.
