Hey guys I have a question and i have already searched the other threads for advice but have gotten nothing. Anyway I want to submit a bid for a lawn care job for a local town. Only problem is I have no idea what information the bid should include. I know it should include the name and stuff and what my bid amount would be but what else should it include? What else can i put in the bid that would help me win this account? Thanks for any help.

I've been cutting residential lawns for about 9 years and now an opportunity to cut a big commerial account has arrived and they have asked me to place a bid, but i dont know the first thing to writing a bid except writing a number on a piece of paper. Can anyone help me?

Have a lawyer help you draft up contract, or else you'll be revising it every time someone screws you.
Make the bid specific as to what exactly your doing. That way if your number is higher, you can point out the extra services that you have included.
Be licensed and insured. Most companies assume that your l&i if your submitting. After they accept your bid, they WILL want the information.

Well i was looking more on the lines of a sample bid that i can revise to fit my own. Although, its a big commerial account they specifically told me that all they want is just cutting. I just want to look professional plus i want to turn this in by tomorrow.
