This idea just popped into my head, maybe you guys could help me work through it. I live in an area with lots and lots of the "lowball, Scrub types" Non of these guys have legal documents. They dont pay any taxes. And they cut grass for cheap. I was planning on competing with them by providing real customer service spoken in English, Credit card payments, and insurance. I was going to know all my cost and get some commercial work which these guys cant get. Then I started to worry..... What about when these guys offer to mow a lawn for $25 a month and im offering $25 a cut. Most people are going to go with the half price rate. How can they even be profitable. They are doing for cheaper then my cost................................ Then i thought, How about i just have them cut my clients lawns? I'll set up the accounts, handle all the billing, handle all the customer service, I'll Sub contract it out to these guys, and pay them $25 and keep the other $25(2 cuts a month). Hell I can set up my own team for commercial accounts and let my lowballer competitors make me money on regimentals. I can tell them not to talk to the customer, pretend they dont speak english(even if they do). I know talking with the customer and the billing are the least favorite aspects of the business for these guys. I wonder if i can get insurance to cover these guys as sub contractors. Also how i can pay them without them having a legal business. Any ideas people? This is sounding better by the minute.
