    First off I won't lie, I'm limited in experience. Which will probably scare most of you off, however, limited experience means less expected pay. So maybe that will help.

    I currently have a lawn maintenence/odd jobs business and will be picking up some residential accounts through that. But I would also like to pick up some sub contracting if possible. I have no commitments as of yet.

    I have a snowblower and a 4x4 pickup w/ 8' plow. (I'm also young and fit and not afraid to get out and shovel a walkway if part of the contract)

    I'm located in Pickering but I'm willing to travel anywhere in the eastern GTA or more if neccesary. I'm available 24/7 and I'm not afraid to work. I'm also very willing to learn. If you tell me to do things your way, I won't be offended. One of the reasons I want to sub contract is to gain experience.

    If you can point me in the right direction, that would be great. Thanks for your help, Mike

    PS, in case it's an issue/insurance requirement for subs.

    I have a clear driving/criminal record and a class G license. That includes no speeding tickets or accidents.

    crazy mike - try contacting the bigger local snow removal companies, they might be looking for drivers/backup drivers for their own trucks, great way to get experience and get know the local guys in the biz.

    okay, thanks.

    I will have my own newer equipment now, and I would like to do that. But I'm going to phone a few of the bigger companies this week.

    Hi Mike, your original post was really good, I'm surprised you didn't get more offers. I am only researching this year but looking to get into both landscaping (lawn maintenance I should say) in the spring and hopefully some plowing next winter.

    How long have you been doing the lawn stuff?
    What kind of plow did you buy? New/used?
    Are lots of your landscaping customers asking you if you do snow?

    Wouldn't mind exchanging some ideas -- you're further ahead than me!

    Cheers, G.L.
