You just got to get out and talk to people, stop in to some commercial places, ask when they will be accepting bids and if you could submit one. Either do that or make a quick phone call, find out when bids are due, then bid the property then! Most commercial properties redo their contracts in late fall or early winter, depending on when their current contract expires.

Stop and talk,the contracts here are 3 to 5 years,what are the big companies like in your area new 1s are always open what pays the most residential or commercial sometimes commercial's are way cheap the want a full service cut and trim snow mulch.

The mowing part of upscale commericial is always less than residential, but the upside advantage is supplemental work year round. We just finished clearing a woods for one of our resturants so they could have more parking. We cleaned up a holding pond and did tree trimming at another. On two other properties they had bushes and trees lowered.
