    Shoot me a text and remind me FG, I have his cell number although I have not had contact with him in a couple of years. Not sure if he is still in the game or not. Last I talked to him he had taken a decent hit by losing a Wal-Mart or some other larger commercial property if my memory serves me correct.

    We run several crews, a dedicated commercial crew, a high end residential crew, and multiple mow and go crews...we try to leave no stone un-turned when it comes to making money...the commercial accts. are the only ones that we wait a little on for payment (usually under 30 days) all the rest are billed & collected in advance or at the time of service. it is mandatory for a new client to open a billing acct. in order to start service. this means we keep a credit/debit card number on file and we run that right before each service date...if it doesnt go thru we call for a good card number or we skip service visit all together...have very little issues with collections this way..and the fees to process are not bad at all....it works for us...and yes, we bill by the cut on all residential services.
