I received a phone call yesterday from an mobile home complex manager about getting a bid this coming season for there lawn care. I do 98% residential with just a few small commercial accounts. The homes in the park are fairly close together and are priced out per unit. That part is no problem. This complex sits back a good 250-350 yards from the main road and stretches a good 3/4 of a mile. The easement or approach as i just described is huge, but just straight mowing with very few trees to trim around. I talked to the manager and he said last year there was a 4 man crew and it look them all day to complete the job. That was with 2 guys mowing on lazers and 2 trimming and when the 2 trimmers were done they would mow after. I guess the manager was very unhappy with this company and is looking for someone new this coming season. With residential I can pretty much walk the property and do some simple math to give a bid. But with this large of a property how would any of you try to get a number for this property? I am looking at how long it would take me to complete this property plus all the man hours and expenses. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
