You're following correctly. I bill a month in advance for any maintenance work. No payment no service.
When you have cash flow in the winter it helps smooth out the wrinkles. Yes I'm aware you can bank the majority of your money in the summer and just save it for winter.
When you do this for maintenance, you aren't really financing anything. Sure we spread fertilizer over a few months, but it keeps the clients happy.
But by doing maintenance plans you have a steady cash flow year round. Steady income.
I Dont do residential snow work so I can't comment on that. Although I may setup a route next year and that would be on a winter seasonal plan.
