have a client i'm going to see. we serviced them 3 yrs ago, and they cancelled. not because of work quality, but cus we were inconsistant. that other job had my hands tied and i just couldn't make it every week. well, they called back. they said they been through a few services since losing us, the property went to hell, are very unhappy, and would i please take them back. here's the thing. i always read here that when this happens you should jack up the price. i think the motivation behind this practice is revenge. personally i charged a very high price back then, and am very happy to re sign them at the same price. the only increases will be the initial labor involved in getting the place back in shape ex: heavy trimming, weeding, etc. other than that i will bow my head, thank them for having us back, and provide a good service at the same prices i used to. my fees were "premium" back then, and 3 yrs later i can still do it at those rates. how many of you would take advantage and raise the rates?
