How does everyone normally bill for a mulch job (4 cu yds)? Do you get paid upfront? Collect payment after work is done, but before leaving? Mail them an invoice? This is a new customer, first job I've done for her. Any thoughts? Thanks.

if it is a new customer I would ask for some up front. I normally ask for about 50% of material costs up front if it is a new customer. Regular customer, I just bill them the total cost on their next monthly invoice.

Good point. I like that. I should have mentioned that all my clients with big mulch installations this year are new for me.

I agree with the 50% up front. But only on new customers you do not know.
I had a couple of new customers. They were new to me but old friends with some of my best customers. These customers had recommended me to them. I just felt with this situation if I had asked for up front money I might have insulted them and maybe loose my current cust.
