    Of course it really depends on the person, but more so, how far apart the houses are. I was told by someone recently 140 an hour, but I think that sounds a little high.

    I would like to say that one man handing out hangers in a neighborhood where the houses are packed in can do approx 900 in 7-8 hours. Remember this included walking from different neighborhood to neighborhood. We drop off our hanger guys (they mow for us) and each wears a backpack with the hangers. I give each crew of two a map of the areas to target. They know not to leave hangers on undesireable houses. With this method we do 1800 in a day. Also watch for other companies that are delivering in the same area, last year we were trailed by a competetor who replaced our hanger with theirs. Make sure your guys wear company shirts too.
