Does anyone in here use contracts for residential account strictly for mowing/fertlizing? If so what do they look like or say? How do you present it to the homeowner do you have a sample of one that I may look at? Thanks
I have been working on a sheet that doubles as a price estimate sheet and a contract. If They liike the bid, they just sign it. I have been developing one thanks to the help of Lewis Landscape. It is based on theirs but I am modifying it a little. Here is the link to the few he gave. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=121529
It doesn't hurt for mowing, but it doesn't have to be lease on life. Just have a price and a timely pay schedule, and a 30 day motice of termination clause. This stuff about pre-pay, and them having to pay for the rest of the season - even though the service isn't given, is a bunch of crap. No one wants to go through all that just for a lawn service.
here in Michigan, for chem., we're required by law to have a service agreement stating that they agree to have us come in and service their said property.
