    Through my 8 years as an LCO operator,
    This is the reason I dont like LOWBALLERS

    For me, I am a small LCO who does not
    rely on advertising. I really on the same customers
    each year. I am only trying to make a decent living, when I get undercut and I do a good job I am FURIOUS

    LOWBALLERS, if you know the lco doing the property your after
    ;) :mad: and they do a decent job, commercial or residential
    do NOT BID or less the client is extremely unhappy.
    For they are just trying to make a living and that makes it
    much tougher on everybody.

    IF the LCO is BAD (chemlawn, etc) and have very bad
    quality and timeliness GO AHEAD AND BID, but do not undercut
    a crappy LCO, WHY undercut if you are better.

    FINAL ADVICE--Do not bid on well-kept lawns, bid on those whose
    lawns need some professional care, for we are just trying to make
    a living,,,,

    that's the nature of the beast. there always going to be these low ballers out there. we need to live with it. if you do a good job and provide a proffessional service, you'll gain more than you'll lose.
