and taking advice from most ppl on this site helps too. I usually answer posts then start them but I may as well relate a story. I was out doing some early cuttings this week and I was at my corner lot that I've mentioned before in quotes and landscape bids and what not. Just finished and we were loading up the trailer when a lady stops by. Asks if we can give her a quote and she lives down the street. Since it was the last lawn for the day other then a trip to the dump I go by and quote. Pull up, nice corner lot again, which seems to always get the attention of others. I asked her if she had previously used a service which she had said yes to. The last guy she had for 3 years charging $28.00 a week but he kinda got lazy about it she said. I said my quote is $35.00 on the lawn. She says, that's a lil more then she wanted, she may have to shop around. I said that's fine you can give me a call. So she goes in and comes back out and says I asked my husband and that's fine when can you start. I let her know I would e mail out a copy of the contract tonight for her to review and they are going on a pre-paid plan for the season. She let me know that she drove by and seen us and had to make a u turn to come back for our number. She really liked the set up and we looked profesional and orgainized. So yes looking good pays off. I don't even think she took a look at the lawn we were working on. Those Trimmer Traps sure do get the business lol.
