exactly. nailed it.
mechanics, plumbers, electricians, HVAC techs, doctors, dentists, optometrists, all services paid for when services are rendered.
what if your dealer did this?
well we billed you for $xxxx.xx this year so next year we are going to divide that number by 12 and bill you monthly whether you get service or not. Don't worry it will balance out. if you don't get that much service you'll probably get more than that the following year.
Bet you would tell him to go fly a kite and find another dealer.
