it will be hard to get residentuals to go this route. it is possible though especially if they are high dollar accounts. we have a few on 12 months but most are pay as you go . as far as commerical is concerned see the above post. they are a must...

I am surprised anyone would hesitate to sign a contract with a contractor. Every job we do is contacted (landscape contractor) , even trimming shrubs, how else will you and your customer protect your intrests? What do you do about non-payment without a contract?

I have found many of my customers prefer contracts.we are set up for monthly payments,this helps to keep their monthly costs down and keeps our income consistent.I always point out that either party may cancel the contract at any time after giving 30 days notice.If I can't correct a problem in that time,something is wrong.
