Coast to coast and Intergrated

I'm currently talking with these two companies for grass cuts and although prices are low I am considering taking on some work from them. Any input? Good, Bad or Ugly?

If the prices are low why are you considering them?


That is what keeps the prices low.
Folks such as yourself that accept low prices.
You are part of the problem. Just say no to their prices.

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.

Thanks for the warm pompous welcome. You have no idea what rates I am being offered. I know last years high schoolers trade is todays business tycoon proving ground. Pardon me for wanting to feed my family on rates that others in this area will scoff up.

No offense, but without an introduction post coupled with a first post looking for help, what did you really expect?

Pompous??????????????????? You want to see pompous???????

Go look in the mirror. YOU yourself said the rates were low.
I only commented on your comments. And then you called me pompous.

I've been a forum moderator on many forums for way too many years. I've been called many things, pompous has not been one of them up until today.


My comments were not meant to be harsh, they were meant to be to the point and truth.
Apparently they hit a little close to home. If you wish to be a contractor in any trade, let alone play in the P&P world........
you are seriously going to need a much thicker skin!

Thank you. I barely had time to get that post out. I am chasing down every lead that comes my way. No offense taken on this end. I was spoken to in an unprofessional manner by somebody upset at my lack of professionalism. Responded inkind. Case closed.

This attitude, he will find himself broke. Ignoring dollars to chase pennies. The PP battle cry.

Smile Instead of battering the guy

I was in your shoes a few years ago - $21 grass cuts pumping out 100 cuts a week(luckily I was given all metro areas just a few suburban), I was living the high life; or so I thought! I was brand new to the P&P Industry and just came from a low pay sales job making roughly $700 week. At the time I was just me and my nephew. Would I do it over again, yes - do I have to? No! I'm getting $35+ per cut now and still pumping 70+ per week.

I would say if the prices aren't over $30/yard and the pay isn't quick(7 days or less) keep looking!
