How should I handle this situation? H.O. (home owner) wants a one time cleanup. Wants it done on Monday and is willing to pay extra to bump another client. Easy cleanup. The HO won't be home on Monday and wants it billed. I am asking a deposit. How much deposit should I ask for in this situation? I usually wouldn't ask a deposit for a job under $500.00, especially since there are no materials involved. Only labor, gas and disposal. Thanks guys. a lot of you seem to know what you are talking about.
