    Hi everyone. I'm new here, and new to the business. I plan to start this winter, and am trying to get things together now.

    I've done the search and haven't come up with anything to work with. What I’m looking for is a annual contract for a set price/ season, as well as a per push contract.

    I'd also love any feedback on equipment on no-no's and great things. Possibly pricing too. I have a f250 4x4 I’ll be using. Also wondering about salt/sand spreaders.

    Thanks for all the feedback, I really appreciate any help you can give me.

    My e-mail is pictureperfectlawncare@hotmail.com

    I’ll post my fax number as soon as i buy the machine. I can't fidure out how to get faxes on my DSL connection to my computer

    Thanks again

    Welcome!

    Do a search for all the specific questions you have and info that you need, then ask the questions that you couldn't find answers to. It will be a lot easier to give you the info you need that way.

    You won't find a lot of people giving up complete contracts or pricing structure since there is a lot of work involved in building your own. Here is a link to some samples that are a good starting point –Sample Forms


    Here is another link to buy a CD with a lot of good material on it -
    Managing Snow and Ice CD-ROM

    I hope this helps - michael

    Most of our accounts are seasonal. What are your contract questions? - michael

    well i am writing a contract and it would be tons easier to have one to model from. I'm looking for a one that protects myself and the customer, as well as has all the usual bs to make it an agreement that i can recoup any payment that they may default on. just want to cover my arse as well as get paid. The contract that i'm looking for would be for the season @ a specific price to plow anytime the snow is 3 inches or more.

    thanks again in advance for any help.
