    Can anyone out there give me tips on bidding a meijers parking lot. I was asked to give an estimate on snow removal and have no idea on how to bid something that big. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    Alot goes into something that big. I had my fair share of big lots and they are OK at best. Meijer is not so fun since they are always open! If I was bidding on a Meijer I would make damn sure to cover your butt because it can go both ways in a hurry. I will never do a Meijer I like medium size lots. I see you are from MI where abouts?

    Hate to say this but,


    You better have alot more equipment lined up now other than your one truck or you will be living at meijers for the winter and still trying to get caught up in july.

    If youve never done anything even close to half the size of a meijers, your probably better off not bidding on it now and working your way up to something that size over the next couple of years.

    Dont bid it. By what you are asking you cant handle it. The truth hurts sometimes.
