Told you they are even worse for repairs and rentals. Hey Jim Merry Christmas. I got 6 more done this week and got 4 calls. The only other cleanup I am doing is my house. LOL> Take Care

Almost done here. I have about 10 more to do, and a handful of pell. lime/fertilizer applications. I figure we should be done by Wed/Thurs of this coming week. I really didn't think we were going to make it this year, after the snow and cold temps in the beginning of the month. I got my Christmas wish:) Merry Christmas, everybody, enjoy the weekend!:drinkup:

i've been sick of them after the first one. but still doing them, it's been two months of just leaves. i did a whole block in my neiborhood.wow,. i'll finish next week with them. but if anyone calls, i guess i'll be doing more. dammn i wish i had time to clean my equipment, it all looks 10yrs old from all the overtime. i was looking at the compost site, and was amazed how much leaf was piled. it's a mountain..

I've been shut down for the last month because the snow never melted. I actually already took my boards off my truck. Well, I'll be putting them back on Monday and heading back out there next week.

Should I check with the customers I didn't finish and make sure that they
still want fall cleanups done?

We are done for the season. Snow still blankets 80% of the lawns. Illday, our latitude is below yours, how do you not have snow? Are you by the bay?
This years undone fall clean ups become nesx year's spring clean ups. Pay me or pay me later. payup Merry Christmas to all.

All my lawns still have snow, I'm hoping Monday's rain will take care of the remaining snow so I can finish my cleanups.

Cody's has scag, great dane, stihl and shindaiawa. little wonder, giant vac and some other I can't think of. Its just to far for me to go for service. Teps has Honda 21's and Husqvarna. still, they are a rental place also. NOT CHEAP AT ALL VERY EXPENSIVE.

Yeah Rod that snow you got missed us down here, we only got a dusting to 2"s but it did slow us down for about a week.

"TEPS" he has a couple of honda HRX left over he qouted me $530 i think home depot sells them for $699. I bought my first mower from Paul $5200 for iz4817 husq. I like it but i never been on anything else so i probably don't know what i am missing. I live a lot closer to cody's but there 48 was over my limit at the time.

Maybe you should charge more for your clean-ups.....enough to "make
you like them! I like fall clean-ups....they are a lot of work, but, I make sure I get paid well for it. If customers don't want top pay then you don;t do it.
