Go I lawn and similar products are set up with your "rules" ahead of time. Using the "free method" you measure the property while the customer is on the phone, then under pressure while the customer is waiting and you are trying to talk and calculate, you screw up the math and ooopsie! with Go I lawn your prices and set up ahead of time. Customer calls you type in address, it spits your price right out at you. Mowing, ferting, weed spray, whatever you have given it information for, based on A) location of the property (maybe prices are higher on the north end because its farther away) and B) square footage.

Go I lawn has newer pics by several years. putting together a yearly contract, with $20 per cut x 30 cuts or $600, divided by 5 months for $120 a month isn't a bad idea. Your cancellation policy is 30 days notice. You charge 1 month in advance, so they at a minimum have to pay you $240.00 so you won't get those "cut me once" type customers. Also, make sure the contract they sign has contingencies in it. $60/hr, minimum of 1 hr over the first 20 minutes on site for: Cutting down heavy growth, and cleaning it up. Excessive pet feces. Moving excessive lawn obstacles. and anything else they pull on you. So typically, if you have an overgrown postage stamp, it will be a $80 first cut and an average of $20 after that. So you charge them their $120 by CC up front, when you get there, if there are shenanigans, you run the card after the service for the extra $60. If they get pissed and cancel, there is a 30 cancellation period. So you still get your $300 out of that postage stamp. Customers with $20 type lawns all live in the same community, generally, so there is no need to discount for closer lawns, if you are already doing $20 lawns, the neighbors will catch on because everyone else is doing $35. If people balk at your pre charge and canellatin policies you simply explain it's only to weed out people who are trying to take advantage of the pricing, to get your to mow down their overgrown yards, only to cancel service and mow it themselves. This behavior forces yo to either raise your prices to compensate for this, or charge and honest price, and have policies to prevent the abuse. You are only looking for people who honestly want weekly service at a price that's fair for their lot size. And for those customers, this system works great. IF you were to travel out to their property and estimate in person, you'd be a $35 min. This system and associated polices works best for bringing the customer the quality the expect for a price that is unexpected. Sorry, No I can't share contracts with you, Im a consultant by trade, and I get paid for that.(among other things) There is only so much information you can get for free.
