I have used both methods, monthly billing after services have been performed and pre pay. Pre pay assures you are paid before services are performed thus saving you from having to chase down your money from deadbeat clients, the biggest drawback to pre pay is keeping track of who paid, when, and for what services before you make your mowing route and what accounts recieved a credit due to rain, and so forth...this can be a pain in the ass. Billing after the sevice is complete is straight foreward and requires less record keeping, but will put you in a position to not get paid by the deadbeat clients. I tried pre pay last season and I didn't like it so I will be going back to billing after services are complete.
