How do I get my current customers to sign a contract? I started my business about 8 months ago and I have several customers that I do monthly, But no one is on a contract..... any suggestions. I always get "I don't want to be on a contract!

I dont have any of my lawn customers on contracts. I dont see the need for it, unless it is a very large property.
I only use contracts for tree jobs and such.

I only use contracts for the larger commercial jobs I do or strata places. For residential customers, it's just a pay per cut deal.
