    Has anyone ever tried moving their accounts to different days?
    I've done it a couple times just because it made more sense to move certain ones to other days. But, has anyone ever tried shifting all of their accounts back a day or two? I'm thinking that it isn't a good idea, but i'm curious as to what the rest of you think.

    Of course. I do most my yards in zones or areas to avoid long drives. I will move certain ones back or forth to better suit my schedule. Some customers who request certain days I wont however

    I swapped two full days around for a very large customer this year, a $10,000 account. I had two $1,000 accounts complain, because they were on friday (two house bimbo's that don't work).
    The big acccount has been with me since inception and owns the featherlite dealership where I can get any trailer at any time and work it off on his personal lawn. That's right $10,000 for the summer on his home lawn 2 1/2 acres. Much more important account, the two homes are undervalued anyhow.

    I also shifted three days into two this year. I usually work from closest to my shop to far away by the afternoons and into the evenings, so I don't have to drive along way to get to an account. I have things that lead all the way out far away.
