Normal business hours are 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday.

Customer understands that from time to time certain preparation procedures may be required to obtain adequate control, and agrees to follow Go-Forth’s recommendations regarding these procedures. Customer further agrees to grant access to all areas of the structure and/or property being serviced during normal business hours for inspection and treatment.

This service shall begin on or around the initial service date noted the agreement and continue thereafter for the initial agreement period listed on the agreement. The service will continue after initial service period indefinitely. The regular service cost may be adjusted by Go-Forth without written notice after the initial agreement period.

No service includes moles or voles.

NEW AREAS: Any new areas added after this contract is signed may result in additional costs.

SERVICES are preventive in nature and do not require regular pesticide applications to interior of structures.

SCHEDULING

There are many extenuating factors that affect the scheduling of all types of lawn treatments, including seasonal requirements for certain applications and current or suspected weather conditions. Therefore, the schedule outlined on the agreement is a guideline only and scheduling of treatments will be left to the discretion of Go-Forth in the effort to achieve maximum efficacy of each lawn treatment. Go-Forth will need access to all areas of the property being serviced during normal business hours for inspection and treatment. If the customer wishes to schedule a treatment for a specific time, it will be the responsibility of the customer to contact Go-Forth in advance. However, it cannot be guaranteed that the service will be able to be performed at that time based on weather and other factors that affect the efficacy of lawn treatments. Scheduling appointments is a cooperative effort. If interior service and/or scheduled appointments are requested, and after due diligence to schedule, GO-FORTH is unable to schedule a service with the customer during the month due, an exterior perimeter treatment will be performed for regular treatment at regular service rates.

CANCELLATION BUY OUT or EARLY TERMINATION: If the CUSTOMER should desire to cancel at any time, they may do so by filling out the online cancellation form located at https://go-forth.com/cancel/  and agreeing to the forms conditions. A service should not be considered cancelled until the CUSTOMER has received confirmation from Go-Forth in writing by email.  Should any service be terminated prior to the end of the initial minimum service period specified for any reason other than failure of Go-Forth to adequately fulfill their obligations under this contract, there will be a buyout fee that will be $195 minus what the customer paid for their initial service, plus plus the immediate payment of all due balances.  If the customer paid $195 for their initial service, there will be no additional charge for terminating this agreement prior to the minimum agreement length. However, if early termination is due to a move within the Go-Forth service area, the customer may “move” the remainder of the service agreement to their new location. There may be additional cost involved with any new service. Go-Forth reserves the right to terminate this agreement at any time without prior notification and for any reason; in such event, Go-Forth may credit or refund payments for the current month of the cancellation as well as any payments that have been collected for future months; however, payments for any months prior to the current month of cancellation will not be subject to credit or refund; therefore if any payments for prior months are past due, those balances will remain due.

MISSED or SKIPPED SERVICE

Go-Forth will treat any accessible areas during the scheduled month and it will be the responsibility of the customer to contact Go-Forth the following month and make accessible any previously inaccessible areas. Services may be rescheduled for the following month but this rescheduling does not affect the scheduling of the following service. In some situations this may mean 2 services and charges in the same month.

COLLECTION INFORMATION

If any payment or payments are due Go-Forth and are not received in our office within 90 days of any invoice then collection fees will be incurred.  Customer agrees to pay any and all costs of collection of any amounts due Go-Forth, including attorney fees. If a service is terminated due to non-payment or late payment, Go-Forth may require Advance Payment or Auto-Pay Payment to reinstate service. A service fee of a minimum of Thirty-Two Dollars ($32.00) will be added for any and all returned checks.

The regular monthly cost may be adjusted by Go-Forth without notice.
