    I figured they would take other bids once they saw ours and it sounds as if they did. They will probably put up the cleaners they have.

    Yeah.. About five years ago I bid a job thinking to build a local route.

    They dithered and stalled until I finally called the contact for the last time. No, they were still "thinking about it" about six months after the urgent "we need a bid by Friday" call.

    So I offered him a choice, to "sh*t or get off the toilet."

    No idea who they hired or when; nor do I give a tinker's damn.

    All the post on this subject were pretty interesting. We Are the Mom and Pop you all have been talking about for years:headscratch: You know the no vacuuming, toilet cleaning janitors:biggrin: I agree with everyone, that I wouldn't get to enamored with any auto dealership. All the bad that was posted is prolly accurate (maybe not). But, there's nothing "EASY" about this job. If you believe it's gonna be easy, breeze in, breeze out, prolly need to keep moving.
    Like everything, success only come with hard work.

    It will be easy because I won't be doing it.

    Seriously though, I agree it's not just about showing up you gotta do the work too. All of our accounts are easy in the sense things run smoothly for us. We know what needs to be done and how to do it. The hard part is employees but that works itself out too.
