    Busines is Business,
    It dosent matter what time of the year it is, they still need service.

    Send a letter, then a follow-up phone call, if that doesnt get your foot in the door, then maybe a personal vist with a small token of appreciation ($5.00 to local car wash) to see what there needs are.. Maybe it might not work at first, but if your persistant, never know... I have been trying to land this contract since FEB 2001, just signed a deal on Friday..... If you want a contract go and get it... :D
