ill have to give them a buzz tomorrow...
only reason i am pushing it... we have a larger loader doing a target, and the parking lot attached is a home depot. would be really nice to double dip . machine is already there
Hotshot, let me know if you hear anything and i will do the same for you. I talked to the five nationals I deal with and they are all waiting for a response. I am in the same boat you are in, I do a grocery store with the only thing seperating it from the home depot lot is a 4' island
$18k... ouch!! I never thought I would look back at USM reighn of terror the past decade as the "the good ole days" when nationals paid a somewhat fair price.
If I was you I would string them along as long as you can, then the day before a storm tell them to go pound sand. Then you can sit back and laugh as they scramble to fill that position at such a horrible price. Or you can demand more money, that tactic worked for me last winter. I dragged my feet for a month and half without signing the contract leaving them with the impression that I was doing it for there price, then when the first storm was a day away I demanded $15k more then what they where offering and they ended up accepting my offer.
Besides the low pay and the slow payments I dont have any complaints about the nationals. I actually find them easy to work for and never had any problems. But that doesnt mean I wont try to squeeze every last dollar out of them as I can, especailly when I know that they dont have anyone else in my area they can turn too.
