i have a street with about 6 clients. all full service accts, great payers, no problems. thier properties are all the same size, and they all get the same services. here is my problem: when i started there, i started with one. her price was $200 per month, with the understanding that fees would increase annually by no more than 3%. it was towards the end of that season, when i started cleaning the leaves, that i realized that neighborhood should be charged a bit more. so, newcommers on that block started at $210. well, after 4 yrs, i am up to 6 on the block. they have all been talking, and are a bit upset that client #1 is getting the same service as all the rest, but paying a few bucks less. they "just want fair and equal treatment." i spent the better part of last evening with all of them on the phone. i was blessed with a gift when it comes to talking my way out of things. what i wanted to say was, " MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS, and worry about your own bill." but, this neighborhood fetches in about $15,000 a season with a few extras, and i don't care to lose them. funny part was, they all agreed they could get cheaper service, they are all VERY HAPPY with my service, wouldn't dream of switching. none of them asked for a decrease, rather, they asked that i increase the #1 client. what do you do about this?
