Need Your Help? Fall Clean Ups

Hey guys I was just wondering who mows when they do their fall cleanups. This will be my first real year (last year only did 3) Last year I just cleaned up the leaves. The guys I'm talking to this year are telling me I should be mowing too. Last year I saw companies doing both, some mowing and some just picking up the leaves. I need to know which to do because I'm building my fall trailer (a open 6x10 landscape with the sides built up) but if I'm going to mow I need to leave room for my mower. Any opinions would help a lot.

We try to mow all the lawns regularly until the leaves drop, this makes it much easier to do the cleanup. And of course makes for a much lighter load in our truck.

we mow while doing the fall clean ups; charge them both for the mowing and clean ups, two birds with one stone

So should I make room on the trailer for the mower or will I be fine leaving it as a box just for the leaves and not mow during the cleanups?
