how do you tell someone that you need to raise the price without making them mad?
just be honest with them. Tell them you have to raise prices due to the increase in gas prices and insurance costs.
Send them a letter and you dont have to deal with them. The best clients are the ones that you never see.
I have the same problem. It seems everyone wants you to drop your prices, not raise them.
unless they have made major changes to a property or services, i try my best not to change prices midseason.
Well I sent a letter to my customers saying I was going up $5 on all my accounts because of the increase in gas. Not one had an issue with it. Just be honest and polite.
i wouldn't raise prices in July.. need to do it before the season begins
Well I had several customers that I could no longer continue because of school and this year Im back with them and charging $10 more than I did the previous years, and they just hired me a gain and they were okay with the increase.
