    The day after Thanksgiving I got a couple of calls from out of state property managers looking for snow removal. I'm thinking "What the heck is this about... 2 in one day, and it's still November?" Very unusual. Turns out I woke up to a trace of snow Sunday morning. I'm thinking they were watching the weather and panicked a bit.

    You can make your own terms.
    You do not have to go with their standard contract.
    If they have already committed to rite aid. Dollar general, McDonald's, etc they have to produce period.
    Tell them you'll give them a bid, but not on they're contract.
    Chances are they will hang up, because they know your not a sucker.
    But if they're desperate they will agree.

    You can get paid sooner, but you take a pay cut, like 3% or something.
    And fwiw, big corps take a lot longer to pay than Joe blow, there's a popular auto company that takes like 6 months before the send their first check out.

    Yeah I get that some corps take a long time to pay and its just part of the process if you want that kind of work. Plenty of threads here on Lawnsite about guys NOT getting paid.

    Not for this outfit specifically, but any contract is negotiable.
    Look at they're commitments.
    35,000 commercial properties.
    They are on the hook.
    If you willingly sign they're rubber stamp contract it's on you.
    If you hand them your own contract, 90 percent they'll reject it.
    Unless your they're last option and deadline is approaching. They may bite.
    Otherwise walk away.

    Not for them. But others.
    30, 60, 90 day pay weeds out a lot of people who shouldn't be there in the first place.
