    Good afternoon, i am looking for a part time salesman. this year i had to go a little further out of our radius for snow work because we don't usually do property maintenance. next year we are going to start, i have a foreman and all of the equipment. i need someone that knows a little about the landscaping business to sell a few commercial accounts. it pays 5% yearly contract total paid once contract is signed. there is a group of three account rite next to each other we are interested in getting. all three received snow bids from us this year and the price was better than the rest, how ever we are not a landscaping company so we where dropped. if you know how to price the landscaping end and can sell PM me.

    **Note if we can sign the bundle of three accounts it will pay 7% of total.

    i know this may seem like an odd request but, in our current line of work we pretty much do all of the hard scaping and snow removal. just looking for some knowledge on the landscaping side, i have all of the specs to properly bid.

    I believe they are a pool installation company during the warm weather.

    If you can bid that type of work, then you have the ability to bid lawn/landscape maintenance.

    Maybe not! I do excavating,patios,walls, some planting,etc and I don't know the first thing about lawn maintenance or bidding, heck my wife cuts our lawn,I detest lawn cutting at home,the thought of doing it,or bidding it commercially? I'd shoot myself lol :dizzy:
