Ive bid on a lot this year. Some high, some very fair priced, some low, just to "assume" i would get a few givens... nada. I had no new clients take any of our bids for service such as apartment complexes, storage facilities or other larger companies. I see trucks at these accounts from your average small LCO, to big places that are on the Lawn & Landscape top 10 like Brickmans and other companies that have no signs or anything on their trucks in front of hotels and such. Whats going on? Surely it didnt have much to do with my pricing, they didnt take the low, mid or high prices so what gives? I had bids for $48 an acre at apartment complexes that were 34 acres in size and tons of trimming and edging.. nada. I had two bids for two apartment complexes somewhat int he same area, closer together, i bid out both prices separately and then offered a 15% whole contract discount to get both places since we could go out in one 10hr day and do both in the same town. Obviously some other company must have undercut that amount even with my 15% discount for both... sucks. Ive heard companies that would bid MUCH higher than my bids and others have told me that my bids were too high for the mowing alone. Most bids had to include costs to do everything though such as mulching work etc.
