Anyone else have a few fall clean-ups left?

I do. About 1 day's worth left (snowed here sun/mon). I may go out tomorrow or just wait until next week. The jobs left are already mostly done, just need more of a touch-up and are "low priority" at this point. Thw weather looks good for thurs am? and next week too. Am I the only one with a few to go or is there anyone else out there? Hellllloooooo (echo.......).

We're done with clean-ups. When I heard snow for Sunday night, we really started pushing and were able to finish Saturday night. I just have a few odds and ends to do, and then put the machines away. This was actually the first year in a long time that I finished everything. Good luck

unusually this year we are getting more calls later in the year from people other than our Yearly customers. I have already finished 3 and have 6 more lined up for after the first of jan. I also have landed another 6 more seasonal contracts for next year since there current LCO decided he did not want to do fall cleanups and only wanted to mow. Funny thing is is that I make more per hour doing cleanups than mowing. Why the heck would they leave 200-600 dollars on the table for each account????
Oh well it is making this years bottom line look a little better and giving me something to do every other week as we are biweekly untill the first of march.

It just melted I have like 6-7 more to go but its very wet and its nearly Christmas so I think I will wait till like next Monday if the weather is good then I will finish up. We have like 2 days work with just 2 guys if the weather is bad I am not going to cry over it I will just call it a year.

Im still scheduling leaf clean ups here in the south. All the leaves have just turned loose over the last couple a weeks.

Off topic...Got a call yesterday. A lady wanted my to give here a leaf clean up price over the phone. She did't understand the program...........unhappy, said she would call me back. People are so lacking common sense these days.


Merry Christmas to you guys...........................sherrill
