    Not to sound harsh, but you should have been raising your prices sooner than this. Get the customer conditioned into knowing that every few years, they will be getting an increase.
    People do price increases differently, some won't notify the customer, they will just add the additional amount onto their first bill. We however, send out a letter before the season starts telling them that unfortunately we must raise their price because our prices have increased, the price of fuel, the cost of insurance, etc, etc. We lost 2 this year due to the increase, everyone else stuck around.
