    Go around or call local businesses, and ask if they are taking bids for 2003. I have found that the best way to do it.

    Click on SEARCH, type in "commercial accounts" as your key words. Then click commercial lawn care and thread titles only in the search options box. Good luck

    I keep my per man hour rate the same for commercial and residential. I cant see giving a lower price just to get a nice commercial account. You need to figure out what you need to make per man hour (while staying competitive) and then apply it to your bid. hope this helps a little

    I actually price my commercial accts higher for the mere fact they tend to be very slow payers.

    Thats a good point most are really slow payers, and if you call they give you a whole speech about how it has to go from their office to the corporate office across the country and then to the accounting department and so on.

    anyways how I have been doing it has worked well for the most part. I have never missed a monthly payment yet. It seems that the big (national) companys are the really slow payers. This being my experience:)
