I would like to take another survey. I thought we could ask the following:

1. How many years in the industry?
2. How many employees?
3. Are you licensed?
4. Are you insured for liability?
5. Is you equipment insured?
6. Is your truck covered by a commercial or personal policy?
7. Do you charge by-the-cut or monthly all year?
8. Do you have a minimum?
9. What is your cheapest lawn?
10. What is you largest $$ lawn?
11. Are you a member of any professional associations?
12. Are you certified in any grounds management programs?

I'm heading out on vacation today and will return next week, please share your ideas on the subject. When I return I will post the survey.

Thanks,

Ray
