    Default Do you match competitors prices?

    So do you? If so do you have a limit or are you willing to match the lowest guy just to get the job?

    It depends on the price. For mowing-NO. For spraying trees-YES.

    It all depends on the job and price. Mowing, it's my price period. I don't touch a yard for less than $35. That's my minimum, don't care if it's a front yard only. Landscaping, mulch, tree trimming or removal, I might match the price depending on my workload, profit, customers attitude, and/or other factors. I won't match the lowest guys price if it's somebody I never heard of. Chances are he is new to the game and doesn't know what he's doing. I'll ask the homeowner, esp if it's a tree job "do you know if he has insurance." Usual response is "no I don't". I whip out my deck page and show him that he is covered just in case something goes wrong. 9 times out of 10 I get the job right then and there with out giving up any profit. But to lowball to get a job, ain't no way in hell. I'm waaaaay past that stage.
