    This is my first year and I could use some help.

    Can someone email me a sample residential contract. I thought I would include my contract as part of my advertising flyer and put them in peoples newspaper boxes next to their mail box.

    What do you guys think?

    My email address is larrygin@alltel.net.

    Thanks

    Hey Pale

    Is there any chance I could get a residential contract? I can give you a commercial if you would like.

    I have always plowed for myself. Never knew there was such a thing as residential and commercial contracts, as far as being different. I use 1 contract for both applications, put the options down and let the customer choose.
    just my 2 cents on it.

    Contract Offering

    Sorry Fellas,
    I haven't been online for a while! :realmad: computers! I'll send to those who've asked and left emails. I think there's no reason why we can't share info, that's why we come to this site.

    contracts

    i feel the same way ..this is a forum, that was founded i believe in the aspect and belief of sharing and using information that can be helpful to one another in the same field of interst..??

    in my previous post regarding contracts i had put up a link for a standard commercial contract here in ontario..i personally use from page 5 to page 10. chk it out ..you might all be able to clip some bits out of use it as it is.

    I think they should have a separate forum for contracts cause it gets talked about here quite often, I did a search here when I first started plowing and found several good contracts right at my fingertips. I eventually had a lawyer look at mine ( recommended by someone at this site, thank you ) and he tweaked it a bit and it's pretty solid. Remember, if someone really wants to sue you over a slip-in-fall, they will no matter what your contract says.

    I did find that most people wouldn't share there contract cause they spent many payup on it with lawyers reviewing it and tailoring it to there type of work.

    Larrysplow, after your finished putting your contract together, please feel free to send it to me and I will give some advise, I have about 20 or so that I took bits and pieces out of to develop mine, then the lawyer put the finishing touches on, I would be more then happy to help fellow snow plowers out with the info my lawyer suggested.

    My e-mail address is: fbishop@wideopenwest.com

    Take Care
