    For those that use service agreeements or contracts, do you give the customer a copy? If yes, do you go home and copy it with their signature, just give them a blank sheet, have them sign a second one, or another method?

    Thanks,

    Scott

    agreement is worked into the proposal, 3 part carbonless form. Customer gets one copy and the other 2 are filed.

    I use a three-part contract yellow and white copy stays with us and pink with customer. Easiest way to handle it .

    I had them return the original and I will make a copy and give it to them the first time I cut their yard for the year.

    Same here.

    If I have to leave an estimate for someone that's not home, I take the pink copy with me for a reference.

    They then sign, keep the yellow copy for themselves and send me the white one.

    don't any of your customers want to go over the agreement with you? many of mine do, so I just bring along two copies. after we discuss the agreement, they get a copy and I get a copy.

    I think the three part copy would be the ideal way.

    Thanks everyone for the posts. Where do you get you agreements made? Can a Staples make them or is there a better place?
