If you are looking for commercial landscape maintenance bids in your area, it will not take you long to compile a list of potentials. The real work begins when comparing those bids and choosing the best one for you, and this article will help you in making that determination. We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us for acreage mowing bids if your property is within a 75-mile radius of Fort Worth.
Now, though, let’s look at some tips in comparing commercial lawn maintenance bids. Those tips include the following:
- Who best understands what you are trying to achieve?
- Check references diligently
- Make sure there is liability insurance
- Licenses and certification
- All-inclusive pricing is a must
- Judging a book by its cover does matter in this case
Okay, let’s dive into each of these in more detail.
Who understands what you want?
What is your vision for your property? If you can nail down the answer to that question, you can then walk all bidders around your property and ask them to explain how they are going to achieve your vision. You might be amazed by the disparity in answers you receive. The bottom line is this: if they cannot explain how they are going to achieve your vision, in a clear and precise manner, you need to move on to the next name on your list of potentials.
References for commercial lawn maintenance
Never hire a commercial lawn service without checking references. Never! Ask for names, ask for phone numbers, and then diligently check each reference. There are too many schemers out there in today’s world, and it’s hard to determine who is telling the truth and who is winging it with partial truths. You are going to end up paying hundreds of dollars for a landscaping service; make sure that company is legit and they can do what they claim.
Insurance for commercial lawn care contracts
This is a simple one; make sure the company you hire carries liability insurance, and ask to see proof of that insurance. Keith’s Tractor Mowing carries $1,000,000 general liability to all of our jobs; you should expect nothing less from any company you contract with.
Licensing and certification for commercial landscape maintenance bids
This one seems like a no-brainer. It seems like it would be understood that any company bidding on a job would be licensed and certified, but in today’s world that is not the case. Ask to see their business license and any other certificates for your peace of mind.
All-inclusive pricing for commercial mowing services
What is all-inclusive pricing for commercial mowing services? It means there are no last-minute charges or surprise fees. What you contract for when you sign the contract is the final total you will pay, period! Ask that this be included in the contract you are signing. If they won’t include it, move on to the next applicant.
A professional company will look professional in the landscaping business. The employees will be dressed neatly, the equipment will be polished, and they will give off a general air of professionalism. In any business, appearance matters.
