hey guys, i dont know how many of you remember a member on here by the name of Benz2328, he had a few posts about his cub cadet tank, it not striping and a big post BEGGING for your guys help on pricing out a mowing bid for an Indian temple. I could say many more things about him, but ill take the high road and get on with my story. I finished up these two corner lawns at the top of a street that is perpendicular to a main street. We take excellent care of these houses, i mean the lawns get edged every week, immaculate trimming, the beds get their edges recut with the trimmer every week, the striping looks good etc... Well i go to the one house to pick up payment and have a lil chat with the homeowner because i believe in strong customer relation, and we get on the topic of competition and how the kid who mows the house next door, (which is a relative of the kid) came by, knocked on her door, asked her how much she pays to get her lawn cut, and then offered to do it for 5 BUCKS LESS! that totally blew my mind. I mean im already cheap in my prices, at $23 per cut for that lawn is about as much as i could get away with in this area with competition being the way it is. BUT HE GOES AND OFFERS TO DO IT FOR 18 DOLLARS A CUT! thats totally insane. AND HE BAGS THE GRASS! So for all you talking about lowballers, watch out, they are on here, thats why i dont give away any prices (he already knew this price which is why i just said it) or strategies, people are just waiting to stab you in the back for your business. I know you may think im a lowballer for my price, but even with the high quality work we put into these two lawns, my brother and I are able to knock them out in 10 minutes each, so our profit margins are up there which is why i can afford to cut it at that price.
