Don't fire them on the spot or you can expect your current receivables to "shrink". Slow your orders down to a trickle so that when you finally shut things down, they have little to nothing owed you they can take back.
Sadly we have tried that and they just don't get it, ask for the furthest to be re-assigned; does not happen. Ask to be topped off at a set number and they add more.
From conversations with brokers, we are not the only AMS vendors in the our metro doing this... Several of the top players in our area are doing the same. I have done recent wints at properties I do not normally service, these have not been mowed or cleaned since late August or early Sept!
12" grass, now topped with heavy leaves. Dry freshers, leaves, cobwebs and mold thru out in the interiors!
FM will drop them after the next cycle!
AMS just does not care, the tops made their millions and will just crawl off to another venture
They can have my Nov invoice, loss is a tax write off and much cheaper then paying for a divorce, heart surgery or an aneurism
