I tell all of our existing clients.The frustrating thing is many of our clients are going to be irritated with us. Last year a few of them accused us of "over booking" jobs. We cannot predict the weather. Leaves fall when they fall.
The most irritating clients are the ones that want us to wait to do gutters or leaves until "more leaves fall" and then get mad when it snows and their stuff doesn't get done.
We will try and beat the weather.
If we get an early winter, their fall cleanup will become a spring cleanup.
Any one time cleanup clients get told the same thing. Plus.. I let them know that existing clients come first.
This is the first time in 3 years we got everybody finished before the snow.
