What Happens if My Service Day Falls on a Holiday?
If you are a once a week customer, we will fit you in on another day. We will try our best to get you serviced the day before or the day after, but sometimes this cannot happen. If you are a twice a week customer we will try to get to your yard as well but may have to fit you into another day or miss that visit.
Do You Work in the Rain?
Yes, we will work in the rain unless it is lighting or if the rain is just too heavy.
What if I Want to Skip a Service Day?
