Regardless of how long your lawn care crew has been in operation, it is always important to get the details of your work in writing. The following list of benefits may help you make the decision to use one:
- Neither party is surprised by how long the work takes
- Roles and responsibilities are understood by all
- Payment requirements are clearly defined
Without this document, you and/or your client may experience one or more of these unwanted outcomes: delayed delivery, unrealistic expectations, unmet standards of quality, difficulty getting paid, and limited legal recourse when problems arise.
How are Lawn Service Contracts structured?
