    Just call or send in a blind bid.

    Exactly! Or you can advertise, letter your trucks, and tell your customers you are looking for new work. Advertising gets your name out there to customers that are looking for bids. But then you need to bid, and that can be tricky depending on who you are bidding against. Give them your price, and you will get the right customers.

    Around me a lot of the bigger commercial places have a "plant engineering dept" or "facilities mgmt" who are in charge of that. Call and ask for them

    You can call as well, a little less intrusive sometimes...
