If you had an opportunity to do a $5,000+ installation project, that is around 30 miles away, would you still take on the project?

during cutting season probably wouldnt take it.. if it was spring or fall i could probably schedual it and i would take it.. 97 percent of my 150 weeklys are in my town so during cutting season between the cuts and other jobs for my clients i really couldnt leave my town if i wanted to lol.

Two days yes, anymore than 2 no.

for instance I have a huge sod job lined up, it is about an hour in a half away, but it is worth my time. I figure if I cant gross 2500 per day for a job 1-2 hours away it isnt worth my time. It all depends on if you need the work or not.

It would be so bad if I didn't have to drive 40 miles away to dispose of the debri from the site. That would cut my days there in half almost

Did you take the job? What would you be installing?
