Mabey I am the only one who thinks this way but as I pass by other lawncare companies on the road and see other companies working in what I consider to be my target area I always think to myself...what if all the reputable, quality companies in an area got together in some sort of association and pooled their accounts together then divided them back out based on area closest to each company's shop location and company's service profile. Big guys would get the big accounts that small and medium accounts don't have the equipment or man-power to do..., medium guys would get medium accounts that the big guys don't have time for and have too many laborers for anyhow and the small guys guys would get small accounts that the big and medium guys have that they do with equipment that is too big and with too many laborers that could be making better use of their resources on the bigger accounts. The reason to do this....efficiency and quality. Everybody would drive less, be able to do more work while making equipment and labor last longer and doing it all in less time. Accounts would be getting done with the right amounts of people and equipment. Companies wouldn't be competing to survive and "lowballing" to get accounts because they would all have their respective coverage areas and account types that they are set up for. I know for a fact that not everybody wants to be the biggest lawncare company out there that does everything for everyone. Everyone has their purpose and place in the market. With gas predicted on today's news to hit more than 5 bucks a gallon this summer, everybody would have to drive alot less and therefore would be much more efficient in getting jobs done which in turn creates the ability to make much higher profit. This may all sound like crazy talk but just wondering if anybody else has thought of it or considered it an option?
