    I sent out my last invoices in the last week of March. I included new contracts for the 2007/2008 season. Do you think this is to early? I put that they must sign and return in 30 days.

    no time like the present, as long as they don't have to pay anything now. I think that it is good for you for planning purposes.

    Nope, you did good. I had a customer ask why so early. I told him that I had to prepare for the following snow season. If they wanted out I had time for potential new customers. It works out good for all.

    Nope I will had 1/2 my business signed by March 31st for next year and in fact at least 30% is in multi Year deals. I will be all but done by September 1. I do not like calls in November so I let the newest guy handle them..... We all know it is coming.... Why can't they plan ahead. The only objection you have to overcome is I need three quotes. I always mention I can do the quote why can't everyone. If they are too busy doing spring clean ups in the fall they will be doing fall clean ups not snow prep. If I can bid in December I can bid anytime.
