My method i feel is subpar, i offer a contract price x the cuts. $40 per cut by say 30 cuts over a season. Theyre default rate however is say $46 per cut if they default. This ends up hurting them terribly at the end of the contract but makes it way too easy for them to cancel after the 2nd lawn cut. Recently ive had a few customers start my service mid season, i end up trying to manage lots of grass and edging the sidewalks with 3yrs worth of growth. Then the "old" women call up complaining they want it bagged because of all the grass now, then the argue and say they dont want the service then. Sorry lady my contracts are clear as day. She states shell send me the $60, or $30 per cut in her case plus tax, which she also hasnt figured in the nj 7% sales tax now. Of course her default cut rate is only $35. So i only get $10 for all the extra work up front on this crap property now and shell im sure have someone else cut it that has it all "prepped" now. I think im going to add something like a $75 cancellation fee.
