I will be posting pix and vids tomorrow afternoon.
Inspired by Kevin’s success at car dealerships, I proceeded to Champion Ford, the HUGE dealership I bought my last car from thinking I could wrestle a name and contact number for the person in charge, from my sales guy.
Well, they didn’t have a company that did their windows. Then, like a ninja, I happened to “accidentally” end up in the boss-man’s office. He agreed to let me submit a proposal.
From there, a stop for lunch, and end up doing 15 windows for 30 bucks and a free dinner (STEAK KOUNTRY BUFFET), and signed them up for quarterly service.
Anyway, as I’m eating I get a call from boss-man. He said the company that parent company wanted me to give them a proposal for ENTIRE CHAMPION DEALERSHIP CHAIN!!! I almost spit my Pepsi out my nose.
Sooo, I have never proposed, bid, worked on anything this big. Large residential, yes. Strip center store front, yes. A billion windows, no.
Ok these numbers are from a quick count. I will be going back tomorrow to take videos, pix, and look for obstructions, get much more detailed info.
Ford Dealership-212 windows (see pic.)
About 645 windows similar in size and style as those in the available Picture.
I am freaking out. (My wife said to say she’s not freaking out but rather, pleased)
Anywho, I know Kevin will have some great advice. Any tips from you guys who do these kind of jobs before lunch everyday?
I’ll be posting better details tomorrow (05-13-08)
Thank you everyone.
P.s. My wife was watching “The Day After Tomorrow” and every time she was like, “Oh my god!” , or "Wow!, or whatever, I would be like "What? and so this post took two hours. Sad. I know.
P.P.s Chris I want a free wagtail.
