What do some of you first look at when doing a residental bid? I first introduce myself and find out what the customers needs are and then measure off the turf. I look how much string trimming needs to be done and edging. I then will consualt with my partner and we decide how much to charge and give the customer a choice of a weekly service or bi-weekly at either 10 months or 12. The needs of the customer will dertermine the price. I was just wanting to get some help with this. My first customer was telling me his needs but I was pushing for a weekly service. He called back and I told him I would be happy to service him on a bi-weekly agreement for 10 months and he said fine. I'm finding out now how important it is to listen for that need and then show them hoe you are going to fill it.
