    I just thought it was interesting when you talked about low ballers ! Im not going to to talk #'s but you were bidding lawns 30% cheaper than we have been mowing them for years. Then you go into a sub that we have over 40 lawns in and start knocking on our customers doors and talk smack about us. Im all about competion but keep it on the up and up

    Maybe you should reconsider your post... as noted above, that is three lawns.

    Also, maybe you could do some reflecting on why people on this site seem to be calling you out for your posts so often. Maybe there's a good reason?????????????????????????????/ :hammerhead:

    HA! That's what I thought too. I hope it is for a rental property, or business or you hardly get along...but hey, who am I?

    I'm not really getting into the whole pricing/lowballer thing BUT IF I did have a $15 lawn that took a crew 15 minutes to cut, I'd either slit my wrists for bidding it that low, fire the crew chief for taking too long or take another hit off the crack pipe. Read into that what you will. LOL

    i can say in front of god i have never said one bad thing about your company in front of god swear on my life. the farthest to the "bad" thing i ever said was when i talked to one lady who was mad as heck that you didnt do her fall clean up and didnt get to it until late spring. the "worst" thing i said was well some times when a company gets to that size its hard to make every customer first. so i would seriously question your sources on that, and yes i or one of my guys talked to every single person in that sub along with every other "decent" home or area in fenton so dont make it sound like im trying to single your "home sub" out. we talked to just under 20,000 people. that took alot of money to do something like that with pisspoor results to boot.

    i mow one lawn in there for 30 and one for 35 the rest are 40 50 and 55 with 50 being the vast majority. can you say the same? dont lie and try to call me out like bishop and not be able to back it up. you mow darn near every lawn in there for 30 so EVERY ONE SAYS and thats ok because you mow alot in there so you can mow them a little cheaper. cool then. dont make it sound like i came in and lowballed you and lie through your teeth. give me a adress and i will tell you what i charge them.

    you saw me lowball the shat out of the city bid right? and you saw me back my way right out of that bid right? could i have mowed it for that and made money? you bet thats why i gave that bid, did i want to be the lowest bidder? heck no i felt like shat because of it until i turned the work down.

    dont for one second think i go around and follow what you say and go try to steal your work and talk shat about you, never.

    You may have noticed USDOT officers already ramping up efforts in your areas recently. Set for June 2-4, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will be conducting a roadside inspection blitz in cooperation with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Admin., Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Admin., Canadian Council of Motor Transport Admin. and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation in Mexico. This effort, in addition to regular patrols and audits, will include 8,500 additional inspectors in 1,850 locations around the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

    The CVSA is targeting these areas: The North American Standard Level I inspection, which examines all of the following:
    -driver's record of duty status
    -driver's license
    -medical examiner's certificate and waiver
    -hours of service
    -alcohol and drugs (if applicable)
    -vehicle inspection report
    -seat belts and enforcement
    -brake system
    -coupling devices
    -head lamps
    -lamps on projecting loads
    -exhaust system
    -fuel system
    -turn signals
    -brake lamps
    -tail lamps
    -safe loading
    -steering mechanism
    -suspension system
    -van and open-top trailer bodies
    -wheels and rims
    -windshield wipers
    -emergency exits on buses as well as motorcoach and bus safety compliance
    -HazMat requirements (if applicable)

    Watch your back this week and next. Everybody talking about lowballing what about your trucks without them you have nothing.
