if dropping your fees by $2-$3 per week meant more clients and tighter routes, would you do it?
Yes I would, I hate drive time.
Absolutely, I hate paying guys for window time.
In a heartbeat...
i do. For every new cust. i get in one of my "core" areas, i offer a VERY competitive rate. Thats how i have 10 in one sub, 9 in another, and 9 in another. Those are all about 5 minutes apart.
I begun the tigher route back in March and I am still cutting it down. I have also raised prices
Hey, me too!
I do not offer a discount to neighbors, in my mind the more neighbors means the more profit for me. You should not punish yourself for having people that see the work you do also want you, charge as much as it is worth if it were out of your route.
My route covers 200 miles a week. I only take on new customers that are in my existing routes. I have turned down a half a dozen or more this year so far.
I blanket the Subdivisions w/Lowball Prices to Drive out the competition & set up Zero Drive Time Routes...We have one Day where the Crew Can Park & Mow 3 Entire Blocks...8hr day w/out Moving the Truck!
