I have always had verbal agreements with my residential customers in the past. I also have always had some people pay me at their leisure, which can be real annoying. I am going to start doing something new this season. I am going to offer: mowing trimming hedge trimming edging blowing all as part of a "standard" package. I am also going to require a annual contract with a payment schedule included. I know many of you guys have always done things this way, but I guess now its my turn. This should be a good way for me to bring in more money per week.
