Lets say you've never placed a commercial bid for mowing. You're familiar with bids that have been placed on this particular property, and you want to match those bids or possibly beat them. You've got the same size crew as your competitor, but you don't know how long it will take to complete the work or what the cost of operation will be. You think its a job you can handle, and you want to "feel it out" for a year so you can better estimate bids on other properties. Your bid would be approx. $10,000 for mow, trim, blow. Think it would work?
