  • bidding a cemetery

    Got a question for everyone. I am in the process of bidding my first job, it's a cemetery. But i'm stumped. Here in MI, there is still snow on the ground and the bid closes the middle of March and there will more than likely still be snow so how can i give a good bid if I can't actually see what the cemetery grounds look like? Thanks

      i booked two jobs while there was snow on the ground back in jan. i went to inspect the jobs one it warmed up make a long story short i canceled the jobs i just told the people there was not with the high gas prices there wasn't enuf contracts in that area to service and i had to cancel

      what i would do is go down town to public works or what ever office is in your area and get the Geo layout of the land for the grave yard they should have surveys and pics

        Did you happen to read any of the recent discussions on cemetery bids on here? After reading a few, you may decide to look for other kinds of jobs.

        What about the property made you change your mind? I'd love to hear more about this and what others need to look out for when they bid on properties that are still covered in snow.

          My advice would be to try and find another job other than cemeterys...If you get a chance to read the other thread that steve posted youll understand why its a bad idea.
