After 3 years in business for myself, and reading the advice of more grizzled veterans, I see the future lies in switching my customers from a "per cut" billing to a monthly contract, preferably 12 months. Problem is, this seems to be a foreign concept to every customer I've mentioned it too. Most of them have used other LCOs before me, and they've always paid per cut. I try to explain the benefits to them (fixed billing price, lawn can be cut more/less frequently as needed, etc.) But they seem to feel that I'm trying to get one over on them, like all of a sudden after 2 or 3 seasons I'm suddenly gonna take their money and show up every 3 weeks or something. Just looking for some feedback from guys that have done this switch in the past.
