Grass cutting doesn't work that way at least not in my case. The majority of my jobs are weekly cuts. If I have to bump one to next week the money from this week is lost because I was going to get next week's money anyway. The only way I could recoup the money is to double charge for next week (ain't happening) or to add an extra week at the end of the year. I have missed zero cuts this year due to rain. Get-r-done and maximize potential in your particular field of the green industry..LB1234 said:Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the jobs you are doing this week just get pushed back to next week and so on and so on? I don't see how you 'lost' the money???
Because quite frankly, it's not the customer's fault I didn't mow. It would be my fault if I choose not to mow. Additionally, are you giving the customer a break on the price when the grass is really easy to cut? I don't think so. When I give these people a price it isn't dependant on the length of the grass.bobbygedd said:THIS is the part i don't like. richard WHY CAN'T you charge double for next weeks mow? will it still take you the same amount of time, to mow next week, if you had to miss this week because of rain?
