    Has anyone heard who has the CVS accounts this year. Last year Custom Surroundings had them in Ohoi and Penn and I never got any. I have always had at least 10 and CVS wont return any calls.

    By us they went to a well known lowballer. It gets better. This same company got the contract for a bunch of municipal sidewalks, so what do they do? The municipal sidewalks by the CVS's that he is contracted to plow--and has bought Bombardiers for--are being hand shoveled. Another one had the city plowing the walks in front and they hand shoveled them. Real rocket scientist.

    Not to hijack the thread but Can you tell me in email who the lowballer in Grand rapids is? I lost a few this year to one and think we might have the same guy. If so, I got some info for ya.

    I can't e-mail you and I can't PM you until you have 25 or 30 posts. I don't think they are in Mt Pleasant, but who knows.

    Thanks, though. That was one of the few good experiences that anyone had with SMG. We worked for them for 2 years.

    I work in Grand rapids and plow there too. Also help a buddy with his plowing when needed. Think we might still be on the same subject. By the way, my profile says 39 posts, so why wont it work?

    Good question. We were servicing 4 of them, had one complaint in 2 years. I thought that was pretty good. Apparently not good enough.

    The lots are fairly large too. I looked through my past logs and they average 40 minutes just to plow. They all have drive thru's with small lanes and approaches.
