    I have been plowing for a couple of years now, and just wondering if im charging rite. Im all set with bidding the price per driveway, But my question is, If I have to go to the driveway more then once during a storm do i charge for each time. Or do i just charge per storm??

    Repoman - just a bit of constructive criticism - irregardless is not a word...it's regardless.

    Just an FYI should you pass those brochures to customers.

    don't rely on wikipedia - info is not always correct.

    I get your point and also questioned it when my neighbor (paralegal) helped me put this all together last year.

    Its a word. If its good enough to be used in financial, & legal documents, it's good enough for a simple plow contract if you know what I mean.

    From your last link:
    "Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead."

    It ain't rocket science people; it's plowing. It's still in the English language, and it's still used in legal documents...My mortgage paperwork, my repossession bond, My covenant paperwork for my condo. But I guess TD Banknorth, Wells Fargo, & Travelers indemnity are out of the loop too?.?.?

    :rolleyes: I thought the English lesson was already over. I think we moved onto philosophy and how sarcasm and patronizing gets you a beating every time.

    No problem. I collect at the time of signing. For select people I offer a 90 day payment plan, but ONLY if signing and first initial payment is prior to September 1st, and the total amount is over $3k or more. I haven't had one not paid off prior to snow flying yet.
