I currently have 83 weekly mowing accounts and am getting multiple (10+) calls per day for estimates. I would like to keep taking new accounts but my limit with a single crew has reached its peak. Would it be wise for me to add a second crew? I really don't want to pay two more people full time wages, but the work keeps coming so it might be worth it. I'm bringing in just about $4k a week with the mowing accounts (the 83 I currently have).
What I am thinking is, start a second crew. Take about 20-25 more lawns and break the total in half. First crew mows half and the second crew mows half.
I already have 2 guys working with me full time, and a few other's are part time and help with my landscaping work. I moved 194 yards of mulch in 3 weeks!!
I don't know what to do... Should I stop now or keep um coming??
Stop guess-timating. Learn how to estimate and make money! $$$
I would take on all you can and just add employees as you go and find the need for them. If you are getting that many calls every day for estimates it sounds like you are doing really well and could add the help as the work comes in. Good Luck!!!
