Welcome the the forum!

Churches:
They can be a great complement to your commercial accounts. Most of the week they only need service on a limited portion of the lot, not the whole thing. (depending on church size and lot size) You can skip or be late on weekends on certain types of commercial accounts and with a few churches, it can make a GREAT fit.

We've have no problems collecting on churches we service.

I was quoted $2645.00 for a 8' Western Steel Pro-plow this fall.

Not only do churches usually allow you variable times to plow (except on weekends) they also can be a great way to attract business. People tend to notice when the parking lot is nice and clear for Midnight mass or after a big storm in the winter. They may ask who does the plowing or see you in action. I plow two churches and have never had a problem collecting money from them. Most churches in my area at least have a solid financial position.

I have seriously considered marketing my business (or a new one like it) as churches only! We love those accounts. They are never a problem for paying on time, and they pay well. As the others mentioned, the schedules are a little more lenient, at least on the smaller ones.

The plow I quoted was not an Ultra-Mount and those things are SaWeet!

POTENTIAL downside of churches:
Can be political (most are not, but be aware.)
Always have somebody that attends there or marries someone who goes there, ya know.

Everybody has a cousin....
