Contracts are nore rarely used with solo operations and residential.
Commonly, contracts come into place on commercial properties, we’re the need for annual, semi annual, monthly, quarterly, etc. Also where liability may be a issue
Both Sides of the business transaction need Guarantees in writing basic protection. I need to know when I’m getting paid and for what services the customer wants to know what they’re paying for what services. Customer wants to Ensure my insurance requirements are up to their standards and are carried out through the term of the contract.
Many things change when you step out of a solo operation and deal with employees and accounts valued more than a few $100 at a time.
Many of my customers have departments that just deal with contracts for Contractors/ vendor’s who performe services for the company.
