Safe Gaurd

got an email wanting me to sign on as a grass only vendor! Who can possible work for this? This Zone covers six counties!

Here is a little more information:
You would need to refer to each work order for due dates and frequency of cuts. Depending on the loan type, it will likely be 2 or 3 cuts per month. You have a 5 day window to complete all work orders: 2 days prior to due date, on due date or 2 days after due date. We pay a flat rate of $34 up to an acre. If the client for the property is Aurora or Litton, you are required to call from site to get approval to cut the entire yard. You should not place a bid for these orders unless you are advised to by a recurring work Coordinator. For all other clients, if the property is over 1 acre and the broker or client requests that the entire lot is cut, vendors can cut the entire lot and invoice their flat rate times the amount of acres cut. Example: You cut 3 acres and your flat rate is $25. You would invoice $75 for all three acres. Grass higher than one foot can be invoiced for $20 per each additional foot.

That's why the grass is not cut at every Safeguard property

I have ever seen.

Your better off, spending $ 34.00 bucks and walk your neighborhood with flyers and do residential lawn cuts. Cutting the crap they will want cut will tear your mower up and the best you can hope for during grass cut season is to get paid for 90% of the work you complete. This you will learn very fast in this biz.

$75 for 3 acres????????????????

I won't do 1 acre for that.

The only exception might be a completely open acre with nothing to mow or trim around.
And those never come along.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.
