Cant agree here. Your system is a mathematical equation based on percentages of lot sizes. We used something similar in house before I had the man and financial resources to make the change to our system now. We have been burned before for lawns that dont fit the 'model' that you or I developed. With our new processes, we are now accurate to the nearest hundred and thats more than accurate enough for us.
Definitely agree with Cadzilla. Its a trip getting a prepayment amount for people youve never even met and just closed on the phone. We have closed hundreds of new accounts this year and have only met with 5 or so of them in person. Most of the time, we decline their work if we need to meet in person. In fact, had one elderly man get upset I wouldnt meet with him and ended up calling me arrogant. I told him when you are good, you can be that way. He called back a couple days later and signed on for a full program.
