Take a peak at my contract

www.oasisinkalamazoo.com/oasiscontract.png

I'v been trying to organize the services selection area. since you can have monthly/seasonal charges or per service charges. or a combination. I know how to fill it out because i made it. But how do other people see it.

is it understandable?

thanks for the advice.

Looks good except a few things I personally would change. Change Chose to either choose or chosen. Name of credit card holder should be included. I'm a little confused about the as needed part of mowing,but then you give them the option of weekly or bi-weekly?

Ok I don't want to sound dumb here but who fills out the prices on the right hand side of the desired per occurrence service? Is this a priceline sort of deal where the customer writes there desired price? Not being a smart a#s but I see that and I'm confused if I were your customer...

Contractor fills out the prices and homeowner/client checks the box for the service they want........not confusing

Too cluttered and hard to read. I'd suggest divider lines

Being serious here ---
Wow. That's a lot to read. Some could be omitted. Most average homeowners do not like a lot legal mumbo jumbo in my (unproven, just guessing) opinion.
I could not read it all. Does it have a clause that says if any part of the contract is found "not enforceable" the rest remains in force.

Too much stuff for my taste. I mean, I like it, but just figuring that out of 10 "free estimates", you will be the only one with a contract. That much reading might be a turn off to some folks. It might work on established clients, though. And it does not seem balanced. It seems to favor the author a little.

Who let's "some yard guy" write down their card number with security code, et al? Not me, that's for sure. I would need a security reference in there that assures me that my card number is safe, at the very least.

Maybe do a front and back. Legal crap on the front and break it into paragraphs with headers and then put all the multitude of service offerings on the back. And spread them out a little. It kinda reminds me of one of those health forms that asks if you have ever had any of the "following 500 dieases" -- and then there is a yes/no check box with 500 hundred diseases listed.

Rip rip tear. "Hey honey, what was the name of that kid with mower behind his bike? You still got his number?"
