Weather can be a nuisance and put you behind on your route if you live in an area where it rains 4 out of the 7 days of the week. We understand that every situation is drastically different when it comes to weather delays, so we came up with a few tips and tricks to stay ahead.

Check The Forecast And Plan Ahead

The most effective way to prevent service delays is to keep up to date with the weather forecast and plan your route accordingly. If the forecast predicts rain or snow, complete your scheduled jobs before the storm hits to prevent losing money and causing future problems such as overgrowth or city violations. You can reschedule jobs from the app to an earlier date if needed. 

Wait The Storm Out

While this is the least favorable solution, sometimes you have no choice but to wait the storm out and complete the work when it is dry enough to put your mower on the lawn. However, you should try and prevent this from happening when you can as it will cost you more money in the long run. For example, if a single property that pays out $40 per service veers off track from its weekly cadence once a month, over a three month period due to weather, you could lose as much as $120 per property.
