#076 - The Best Contractors Do you know who the best contractors are?    Do you know why the best businesses are successful?   They are NOT the contractors who install MP Rotators over fixed spray nozzles. They are NOT the contractors who choose Rain Bird 5000 rotors over Hunter PGPs. They are NOT the contractors who pitch Wi-Fi controllers over standard timers. They are NOT the contractors who say soil moisture sensors are better than weather-based systems, they are NOT the contractors who say head-to-head coverage is better than single row coverage. They are NOT the contractors who don't mix sprays and rotors on the same zone.   The BEST businesses in the world, are the ones who care the most about their customers.   You must out care your competition.
