Welcome to the Biz. You need more clients or a smaller coverage area. You will be expected to log 400 miles in a day for 5 recuts IF you allow them to do it to you.

You go do them and break even if your lucky! It sounds your new to the game, you will need to show them you can do what is needed, when needed. Then request more work. ex. if you had 20 you would be in great shape!:thumbsup: We all break even some days, its part of being a business owner! Its the days you loose money you want to avoid!

Recuts in Dec???


You might want to send them a calendar. I'd decline them straight up as dormant.

I had the same problem when I started. Over time I shrank my coverage area to stop this.

I am fortunate that there is a lot of work close to me so I do not have to cover a large area to get enough work.

The truth is usually the best response. "We are unable to accept these grass cut orders due to the distance between properties, the rate of pay and volume. Thanks."
