Quotes are for the backyard only. Other areas can be added by request for an additional charge.
Preliminary estimated quote-prices are based on the estimated time the tech will need to spend in your backyard and is subject to:
Number of dogs/cats
Amount of time of waste buildup
Size of yard
Ground cover/landscaping materials
Technician’s assessment of property/site conditions
Based on technician’s assessment obtained on the Initial Pickup Visit, a final quote for Standard Scooping Service will be emailed to the customer for approval, invoicing and scheduling.
Prices quoted are per visit.
Bi-weekly visit fees are higher due in part to the buildup of waste. Tech has to spend more time on the property. Please request a quote. Please note that with a buildup of waste comes odor and flies. Our enzymatic spray will help but not eliminate odor due to length of time in between visits.
Scooping of animal waste via our Standard Scooping Service (thorough backyard coverage)
Hose-down of areas used by doggies (not dirt areas)
Single application of enzymatic cleaner (aids with breakdown of urine/waste)
Technician site assessment
We do not remove debris, junk, weeds, or any other material from the yard.
We do not move junk, debris, patio furniture, pots, or other decorative items to do our work.
Very tall weeds/grass are/is very difficult to look through and often adds to the time involved (see 13).
If waste is inaccessible to our tech, we will inform the customer of the issue to be resolved.
Waste is bagged in scented trash bags & left in owner’s general waste receptacle (avoids cross-contamination with other jobs).
We do not cross contaminate other properties by removing waste in our vehicles.
Since landfills do not accept an abundance of collected waste, if there is a large excess, waste must be disposed of little by little each week by placing the bags in your trash bins.
All tools/shoes are disinfected before leaving the property.
Water bowls & food bowls must be accessible from the outside. A1PS is not liable for or responsible for spoiled/contaminated food or dog/cat’s health due to such.
Customer must provide a water source for hose-down.
Initial Pickup Visit time allowance will be provided on the initial estimate.
If work cannot be completed within the time allowance, we will communicate with the customer the technician’s estimated time for completion. Once we receive customer approval, work will be billed at $7.80 / 15-minute increments once work is completed.
If approval is not obtained, remaining cleanup will occur on subsequent visits. On such visits, the technician will use the allotted time for the Standard Scooping Service to continue with the cleanup. At customer’s request, technician will remain on-site longer to finish the cleanup from the Initial Pickup Visit. This time will be billed at $7.80 / 15-minute increments.
Initial Pickup Visit appointment is confirmed once payment is received.
CANCELLATIONS: If customer needs to cancel an appointment, notification must be received prior to 5pm the previous business day.
Notification may be made by phone, email, text, or A1PS Customer Portal.
If notification is received prior to 5pm the previous business day, a credit for the cancelled visit will be applied to the customer’s account.
If notification is not given or not received prior to 5pm the previous business day, no credit for the attempted cancelled visit will be given.
MISSED APPOINTMENTS: If for a reason owing to the customer, tech has arrived and cannot complete work (due to vacation and/or no one home, locked gate and/or no access, dogs left in yard, etc.), no credit for the missed service will be issued.
If an appointment is missed for a reason owing to A1PS (for example, tech car breakdown, last minute illness, , etc.), a credit for the missed service will be issued.
If technician cannot perform confirmed, scheduled service, A1PS will make every effort to substitute with another technician and/or an alternative schedule. If that is not possible, a credit will be issued to the customer’s account for that missed service.
