What kind of work did you bid on? Lawncare, mulching?

"When would you like me to start?" Yes, that's good. Avoid questions to which they can say "No". I usually steer the scheduling though because everyone always picks Friday.

"I've got one opening in my schedule on Thursday."

That is perfect. Let us know when you start using that closing statement or whichever you decide to go with and how it works out for you.
