    I recieved a fixed fee report from BFS (Brickman Facility Solutions) on a 6 acre lot. It seems kind of low to me. Has anyone worked with this company before? Also what do you think about not being able to bid on the lot, cause they give you the price...:confused:

    I guess he didn't need that much help :confused:You would think these maint. companies would do a little bit more research into the companies they hire. We work for one and we needed to fill out all kinds of paper work and verify everything. I guess my point is it seems they keep giving these accounts to guys who either don't have the experience or the equipment and hope for the best.

    Get in your truck and smoke the rear tires in the opposite direction of that job.

    double it and ask for deposit and payments on the 1st of every month. Do yourself a favor and read the threads about brickman not paying. People go under because of **** like this.

    Hey TGS, thats what i figured. It should be around 30k. They want it plowed every 2 inches throughout the storm. Shovel inside the cart racks, sidewalks oly done once until the store is open, then the lowes employees will shovel and salt as needed.
