Default coast 2 coast lawn care

got a call from c2c the other day asking if I'd like to fill out one of their venders packet. first thing i requested was a price list, what a joke!!!

$20 initial cut up to 15,000 sq. ft
$15 recurring
$8 per cut
$35 wint
$10 padlock change
$8 trip charge

are they kidding me, has anyone had a run in with these guys before? i might be from a podunk town in Georgia, but there is no way i could make a living at those rates.

you just don't know how right you are, sad part is, it'll be someone not licensed or insured, making it impossible for the ones that try to do things the legal and moral way to make a living.

Per yard????? I just turned down a job this week at $25 per.
Told them $35 min, they inflated the yards and sent it up to their client, heck I don't care. As long as the bottom price is what I wanted.


Its highly unlikely they'll find folks to work for them that have to pay out of pocket for expenses. Not around here they wont. This isn't detroit where there is no work at all to get money for their next crack/meth fix.

The only thing is...they won't have a problem. There is always a new wave of ignorance willing to be cannon fodder.

Maybe they have to hire more frequently, as most won't be able to front money for more than a week or so...but the mill keeps on turning.

i just sent a email to the so called state coordinator, if that's who he is, i don't know, just the one that has been communicating with me, i tried your tactic, since they claim im the only vendor they would have in th southeast georgia region, it should be no problem meeting me at my minimum price.

If you already know the rock bottom number you need to make your nut, then stick to it. From experience, I have found that it doesn't matter if the Pope owns the franchise, if I can't make any money doing what they want, there is no point in wasting any more time on them. Good Lord man, there is no way to cover expenses at those rates.
