I have come to the conclusion that in order for my business to grow and prosper, I need to raise 90% of my customers rates. If I continue with the current rates my company is not gonna make it in the long run. In order to continue to do everything in the right way WC, taxes, ins. etc. I have got to get $3-$5 more per cut and thats only a step in the right direction. Im charging currently what everyones else is $27-30 in average nehborhoods 1/4 acre I guess. It seems that even the "big dogs" are charging those rates. My salary has taken a major cut this year due to my employees, and more fuel etc. I plannning on raising about 90 of my 100 accounts $3-$5 per cut. Is it okay to raise a newly acquired customers rate? I have to do it anyways im just wondering how you guys feel.
