I did a search on this topic with little luck. Our mowing service has a residential niche. We will work on one street all day each day. Our schedule is nearly at capacity. The problem is that we have a few customers houses that sit on a street with out servicing any of their neigbors. In the time it takes us to transport back and forth from these few single houses we can cut 2 maybe almost 3 houses in the time it takes to do that one house that sits by it self. Now keep in mind that we have worked for these people for 10 or more years. The question: how is the most effective way of presenting a drastic price increase that compensates for the travel time? These lots are about 15,000 Sq. Ft. and the typical rate is $40.00. I think that we need to get these few houses up to $60.00? Ideas?
