Please help me with this. Thanks!:D

are these exsisting customers who were previously not under contract? in my opinion, if u have had the same customers for 3 yrs, and there have been no problems, dont worry about a contract. the stage has already been set, u all know your parts. i personally dont request a written contract from people who ive had for years, and have not been a problem. all new clients, as of 2001, are required to sign an agreement.

Contacts are good for both parties. Do as search in the elements of business section and you will find some examples.

the lawnsite.com store has an excellent contract. I have it and it is great. My only complaint would be that it looks too professional for me. lol

I'm a computer dummie, so how do I take something from my documents and attach it to a e-mail?:confused:

First you have to know where the file is located and what is the exact name.

Then do your normal email and before you send look for a button that states "attachements". Hit it and a menu will come out asking you where the file is.
Just browse on your computer till you find the file...choose it and wait for it to upload.
When it is done it will show on the attachments list.

Then just hit send/mail like you normally do.

I like the contract. Thanks for faxing it.

Very concise and brief....long contracts scare people.

I am new to the biz so take my critique with a grain of salt.

Ive got lot of family around Dallas In fact Ill be there in Sept. for a wedding. And Im actually giving a lot of thought to moving back to the Houston area. Six yrs of snow is enough for me Im ready for the heat. Im still trying to structure my bizz plan for the seasons down there.

Hardly any snow in Dallas Texas.
When we do get some we all celebrate....:)

Guess the novelty has worn off for you.

Heavenly Green, I have never used contracts before, but I think it would be a good idea, especially a year-round contract, so I bill the customer the same ammount each month and not go broke in the winter! Can you email me a copy of yours?
