    Hey I'm about to go out and try to throw some bids into some businesses around me. For the really big company who would I need to talk to about placing a bid? Also if you have experience doing this, any tips would be awesome considering this will be my second year plowing.

    Not trying to be negative but consider this:

    As others have said ... The person you talk to may not be the person that will agree on the price. Most of the time you will just see a "figure head".

    Don't get yourself involved in a reverse auction.

    As a generic term ... just ask for the property manager. Better yet ... Look over the property and have a written proposal ready with proof of insurance. ... Good Luck
