Been lurking around this site for some time trying to get back into the swing of things. I've been out of the biz for some time and getting back in this year. Anyway, got a call for an this A.M. for an estimate on a small shopping center with around 3.5 acres of grass about 45 min. of trimming and lots of trash to be picked up before mowing. I gave them a bid of $175 per week, 28 mows per year, $ 4900.00 per year. They tell me my bid is high. They have 2 guys mow it for $105.00 each time and they will call when they want it mowed. Oh yeah he says they throw in freebees like spraying round up around some areas and trim a few trees when needed. Is it just me or does that sound really low? 2 guys minimum 2 hours splitting $105.00. Hope this isn't a sign of how my year is going to go!
