    Stick9, they pay you, not really a "perk".

    I send all customers a Christmas card. I also try to do a small favor if I get a signed referal. One customer refered me to a family down the street, I installed 12 bales of pineneedles for him for free as a thank you.

    Kirby, thanks for the enlightenment.

    Believe me, if you saw the kind of job we do, you would understand. It's a perk just to have us cut. People should just give us their money, and if they're lucky, we'd cut it.

    hey excel ..

    I'm guessing you have under 20 customers? If we did that, it would cost an arm and a leg!

    Those costs in turn makes money...nice gestures always seem to lead to more accounts...plus those are right offs.

    If empty garbage cans are out front, I'll put them back by the garage or somewhere near where I know the customer keeps them. Also put the newspaper on the front porch. Just small stuff like that that doesn't take much time but pays dividends in the end.

    i'm gonna send out christmas cards this year,i'll do a couple of things for some select few accounts for free(small things that is)but i have learned the more freebees you do,the more things people will want done free-so i try to not do many freebees.
