    Any one else find that they are booked and that when you get new calls the price goes up?
    I have signed up approximately 25 new residential over the last week and a half, and have given them higher prices due to the fact that my schedule is booked. With three trucks and one sub we are about at our limit. I am by no means complaining it's just scary if we get a big storm.
    Most of the driveways that I have looked at I know people in my area would charge $25.00 - $30.00 I am bidding $35.00 - $45.00 and most of them are going seasonal contracts for around $400.00. Maybe all the snow we had last year has a major part in that. I remember Paul form Paponte and I had a thread going about how hard it was to get people to sign up for a seasonal contracts last year. This year is a totally different animal. I went from having 40 Seasonal to about 75 this year. Anybody else experiencing this change in the way people want to pay?
