    Residential Help

    Last year I had about 25 residential accounts and I had charged on a per push basis. This year I am considering doing a flat upfront payment as an option for customers. For example if I had charged $30 per push what would be a good flat upfront rate to charge? Last year I had billed out around 13 times.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you can do math then you can add up what you charged last year for a seasonal price.
