- Billing and Renewals
Our annual programs not only provide a major source of convenience for our clients, but also are time sensitive in nature being that there is a certain time each season specific services from each package should be applied. For these two reasons, the services booked you will auto renew each season for the same package the client purchased in the previous year. While the start date will vary due to the weather and scheduling, your method of payment, which is encrypted and stored in our data system, will be processed on the first business day of April every year.
You can cancel, change their services, or prepay earlier based on current promotions at any time. Promotions cannot be combined.
Every year, we send a letter to your address on file notifying you of any next season discounts and informing them that their service renews year over year. From there we will email and call at least three times before April 1st to create a channel of communication where you the client can cancel, renew, or change your service details in ways available. If we do not hear from you by April 1st of the following year, we will be charging your method of payment in full as a prepayment for the season.
If you change your email or move to a new address, you must notify us of this change as we must assume each season that your property fields have stayed current unless otherwise stated.
