Angry Winting ALL year?

What the hell? I'm getting notices from 2 companies that I now need to be prepared to do wints all year long. I just did 2 this week. How are we supposed to find wint juice in the summer? It's a "seasonal" item...

Then, what the hell are we to do in the winter if all the wints are done? We have 2 major seasons... Wints and Grass.

Plus, we now have to carry both sets of equipment all the time?

They have us winterize in subtropic Florida so never expect anything that they have you do make sense. I think the rule of thumb is that winterizations are supposed to be good for six months, so maybe they feel they will get total year round coverage..who knows..

Hi

Buy about 10 cases of juice up because they'll be volume.Then if your luck is like mine after you stock up on something magically their is no wints then,or if its salt for snow removal they dissapear.

If you do the wints in the summer, aren't you still paid for them? So you're not losing any money, and then in the winter you have lots of free time to do some marketing and find different clients to work for so you don't have to do sh***y rate wints and grass cuts anymore.

Yes, the regional takes 1/2 of what the nats pay. This new client is a 60/40 split in my favor. BUT I don't have to label pictures, bid anything (just note things I can see that doesn't show in a picture) or worry about chargebacks years down the line. ALL that crap you all hate doing, so pay others to do for you, I don't have to do.

I tried a Regional once that paid really well, did a full days work, but then after 2 hours of labeling photos I deleted it all and called it a day.

I basically work for you, but you give me HALF. Not $10-$15.

I know a guy that used to use pink koolaide Never got busted for it. He shut it down recently though due to low volume and just basically got tired of haggling over dumb stuff. " go to the property and call the police to evict the squatters" $25??? WTF? isn't that basically an eviction??? that was the straw that broke the camel's back for him and he shut it down
