So we have our first commercial property bid to discuss on wednesday. The president of the homeowners association is about 80-90% set on having us do the job. He and the board are currently unsatisfied with the company doing it now. They don't spend enough time on the job and their work is shoddy at best. Not to mention they feel they are being overcharged. I have personally seen the property and it is pretty pathetic. We will be working on 50 condos, 5 units. Nothing incredibly large, but still quite some work. I would estimate it would take us about 2 hours to take care of the mowing and trimming each week, 5 hours or so for all the hedges to trim and clean up (there are a lot) per month, and then a couple hours here and there for spraying weed killer, blowing sidewalks and parking spaces. At the moment it is just two of us, but if we get the job and can work out a reasonable price we may hire some part time help. I know its hard to estimate without seeing it, but I was wondering if anyone might give a ballpark based on similar contracts they have. Thanks guys.
