For all of you who do gutter cleaning, I was wondering how you would go about bidding on this possible contract I am looking at. I do a lot of complexes and HOA’s already, but this one is quite a bid bigger than any of those. It’s 1,368 2-story homes. Even with my usual commercial rates (lower than residential by about 20-25%) its coming out to be in the $150K-$200K range.
I’m wondering if I any of you would consider going lower than normal commercial rates to get such a big job? Or just bid it normal and don’t worry about getting it.
The ladder approach is what I normally do, as work is plentiful where I live and I would usually rather error on the side of not getting a job, rather than being stuck with work that doesn’t pay very well.
Any thoughts/advice welcome.
