    I was just curious when is the time to send proposals for new contracts out..I think I may have been a little late the last few years in doing so....
    Any help appreciated...
    thanks in advance
  2. All I will say is

    Some commercial sign the contact in December
    Some in April (as you unload you trailer)

    I send out all contract to last years customers in January. I give them a mounth to thibk about it and call and flow up on it.

    Seems to waork for me
    this is my 2nd year and I have all my customers from last year excpt 1 becase I sent his bill to collection and he refuses to pay.

    So it is all trial and error.

    I have my old customers back
    and can now focus on advertising to gt NEW customers.

    Hope this helps
