Ok Boys, Need your feedback on this one. Here it goes. Picked up this client in spring of '05. Great guy wants lots of work done, no questions on cost & pays right away. Calls Oct 24th to talk about leaves. Leaves barely falling. He's going out of town for few weeks.W e discuss doing cleanup twice becuz lot is full of Oaks. Big cleanup. We have heavy winds and leaves come down. So We go in and do cleanup 6 guys lots of hours and we rent 2 push blowers. Nothing to haul out. He calls 3 days before Thanksgiving and wanted to know if I could do final cleanup. I told him no cause we had alot we had not been too yet. He says ok. And I said I would get to it when I could. Well it snowed day before thanksgiving and stays until the next monday. So we immediately jumped on the ones we still had to do. Got almost all done. It snows again. Needless to say we didnt finish for the year and he is one of them. So I sent out bill for $650 on December 8th. Well I do the snow also. I sent out another invoice for cleanup and snow on December 30th. So I wait and nothing. I give him a ring today, he's on other line at work. He'll call me at home tonite. He calls and I said I haven't recieved my $ yet. He says he's not happy cuz we didnt do our job. I said we did so and I also noted we would be there early spring to finish cleanup. He says not good enough not happy with amount of bill and he thinks we did not do the cleanup. I said thats funny cuz your kids were watching us the whole time. Says he'll pay me what he thinks is right for what we've done. I said no not good enough I'm not eating that much $$. He then syas I didnt follow through on the contract we had. I told him I did and everything is in bold type on contract. I also explained that lots of guys never finished there work either due to leaves not falling till late and snowing before thanksgiving and then after that and sticking around. He says to me again that I did not follow through and wasnt happy. I then said u wait almost 8 weeks to tell me and dont bother to call and let me know your not happy. Sorry, but at least I told you before thanksgiving that we could get to he's when we were able too. He laughs and says I'm still not paying u the $650 and I said what are u going to pay me. He says 200-300 for what work u did. I said well the lowest I will go on my bill is $550 plus the $ for the snow u owe me. He says we'll see. I then told him it was better if he found someone else and to pay me my $$. And next time if there is a next time let the other person know right away dont keep them hanging like u did me cuz that is plain Rude! So did I handle this properly or totally wrong. Tell me what u would've done on this.
