You'll find that
a.) you don't get customers because of this policy.
b.) you don't get customers because they're not giving a new company, in an industry that is known for guys vanishing, a monthly check ahead of service.

Do ya'll kind of operate in a similar fashion, or do you just send a monthly bill and hope they pay on time?
I think you'll find that the vast majority of prepays are deposits for project work, not recurring services.
