    I have had a few clients complaining about the fact that we were uable to finish Cleanups. We have 43 weekly clients that we were unable to finish due to the late drops, and the early winter last season. We also did not do our extra Cleanup customers, as well as some side projects we would have finished if we could have worked into December like usual. All this is due to the weather and not anything we were lacking.

    What i need is some backup on this problem, as i am going to eventually print this out for a few of my clients. Thank you in advance.

    Tell them you charge triple for cleanups done in the snow!!!! I still have 10 left, but I'm convinced they will become spring cleanups. At least they will be on the top of the list come March.

    GraZZmaZter, I'm in Michigan also and did not finish. I have 35 accounts and was unable to complete 10 of mine. I Cleaned up lawn areas everyweek but did not finish the final which consisted of doing the shrub beds.

    Where are u located at, I do business in the Bloomfield Hills area.
