    That sucks.....

    I have decided to at least give them a bid. I'm 99% sure that they aren't going anywhere since they've been here for quite a few years. On the other hand, I'm bidding against other and probably bigger contractors, so we'll see what pans out.....if its good, this round's on me:drinkup: if it's not ....:angry: watch out

    Well just to let you in on some info, Bj's changed over to US Maintenance for all of thier plowing, lawn and janitor services, apparently they give a low bid just to get the contract. then they call local contractors and tell you they will pay you 40% of what they are getting. good luck we serviced a BJ'S for 4 years doing plowing and lawn maint and we were under bid by about 30%. Plus BJ's usually pays in like 120 days if your lucky.

    Thanks for the info. When I gave them the proposal (today) I included my complete contract in the back, it states that I gotta have $$ in 30 days or I charge interest. I dunno, like I said, just gotta wait and see what happens.
