coast to coast pricing is a joke

What you said got me thinking. If I may offer my input, depending on how many houses you plan on keeping in your rotation the prices add up. We have lots of people who work through us full time. If you are to do 10 houses/day at @ $25 (if the lot is an acre) that = $250 for 1 day and if you work 5 days a week (doing 10 houses a day) that = $1250/week which equates to $2500 biweekly. That is $5000/month and 12 months a year that equals $60,000/year. Honestly, after adding this up, Iím thinking about switching over the lawn care side of things (I would if I had the equipment : ). Not to mention the lawn care maintenance you would be doing for these properties is really basic. Just your simple grass cut and grass clipping removal. The properties donít have to look perfect, they just have to be maintained, about 20-30mins per yard . I donít know thatís just food for thought I suppose. Thought Iíd share. Hope you have a good weekend.**Kirstie ScottPhone. 949-864-8339Fax. [email protected] Lic. BUS11-02764

$15 up to 15k sq ft
$17 15000-35000
$20 35000-45000
$4 trip charge
$35 wints
$8 a cubic yard
$15 monthly maids
$15 snow removel

And she said she would be out doing it if she had the equipment then when the first qtr comes to pay taxes that she has spent all her money on gas just to do the jobs.. and they are the sister company of usbest that pays $45 up to 15k sq ft and 20 for a trip charge which is still nothing to talk about.. and to think she said they have all kinds of people working fulltime with them. Must be illegals

Yep. Said they were the sister company of usbest. So I sent her the usbest price sheet and asked why the dramatic difference in pricing. One of 2 things they are doing. Subbing out the $35 grass cuts from safeguard or keeping 80 percent and giving the botg the scraps. Still no reply from her, with last message being sent at 3 this afternoon. I told her it was sad when safeguard has better pricing. Usbest and pacpres are the only ordermills I mess with never had an issue about payment with them. But brokers are the cream. No pics, chargebacks, asking to do hack work or waiting 30 days to get paid.

I would have sent her the HUD guidelines and told her either they are crooks or they suck at negotiating.

I would bet someone see the information you posted and contacts them to work. From this very website. There is no shortage of people they can promise a fortune to.

I don't believe it. I know that US Best used a company called M&H Landscaping to do all of their lawns nationwide except for Hawaii and Alaska. It might be a company they sub the work out to. I don't think it's US Best.

Yea she even gives you a big story about their company being the sister company of usbest. my jaw hit the floor and I couldn't help but laugh at her when she said they have people working fulltime with them... you would make 60k a yr and only have to put 40k out of pocket to make it work. Goes to show cubical jockeys do not know the difference between net and gross...

Craigslist hack- that's the sad thing, people don't listen to what the experienced say, I mean common sence should tell you you can't make money with those prices.. but they do say a idiot is born every second.. I just might send her the HUD pricing. But it probably won't do anything they know what their doing, can't see how they can sleep at night

$8.00 a yd for debris!!!!! When the are these idiots going to realize we are disposing of debris not buying it!!! If anybody contracts with these prices they deserve to go belly up. Sheer stupidity, the only yard I would cut for $15 is one the size of my living room and it was within a mile of my base. Sad part is there are guys so desperate they will fall for this ruse. Look how many idiots are still responding to buczeks request for lawn contractors.
