    I've been tasked with finding bidders for our properties in the mid-atlantic region. We are bidding +/- 30 properties together. These are located from Philadelphia to Florida. The colder sites will also need snow removal.

    Most sites are 10 plus acres, one is 61 and we also have about 10 bank branches.

    Does anyone know of a National or East coast company I can send the bid package to?

    The contract will not be awarded until Spring of 2008. We are organizing the scope of work for each site and should send the bid packeges by the end of Oct.

    Any help would really be appreciated.

    I'm willing to stand corrected, but I don't see too many Lco's wanting to tackle this as a whole. Not saying there aren't any, but I assume you need more than one for this process to work, so I would suggest splitting these up by state, you may even have to narrow it down to the county / city level for it to become available to a larger crowd...

    it hurts me to say this, but a nationwide company like Brickman, Trugreen Landcare, Valley Crest, Bizuto... might be you best option. and even then they might not have an office near a particular town or site so you'd still might need to go local...

    If you want a national company to bid 'em all, you'll have to be willing to pay top $$ for work that's no better than average.
    Lots of hands in that cookie jar.
    You'll still have the local variability in care combined with the lack of response from a big company..... lose-lose.

    Why can't the location manager be responsible for handling grounds care?
