I just did an estimate for a guy. He seemed pretty cool at first, after I gave him the price he came back with a bunch of info for me so now I know he is going to be a giant PITA. Forexample he has already had his lawn reseeded by by true green beacuse they killed his grass. We have not had raid here in 2 months and eveyones grass is dead, I looked at the spots that were reseeded and there were 2 spots. One on either side of the driveway where he pulls in and runs over the grass so I'm sure it wasn't true greens fault he just pinned it on them. And their service guy just reseeded it to avoid the BS. Then he goes on to tell me that his current guy only charges $15.00 a cut and if it doesn't need to be fully cut he only charges $7.50. I've seen his other guy around and he looks professional enough so I don't really see him doing that, but maybe he is because this guy drives him nuts. So here is my thing, how should I go about dumping him without looking like an ass as there are a couple of other places on the same street I want to try and pick up. He gave me an in at raising his rate because he stated that he wanted a set day that I mow, so I could raise the rate on him, but what if you takes it? I don't want him, period. I'm also affraid that if I bump the price too much he is going to run around telling people that I advertize one price and then raise the rate after I have them hooked "bait and switch" type of thing. I kind of have the feeling this guy has learned that if he wants a quality job he is going to have to pay more, but I don't think he will ever stop being a PITA and I'm going to get blammed for everything and anything that is wrong with the property. I just don't want the hassle. Should I just ignore him? should I tell him that I just got a really big job and don't have the time? What do you think?
