    Hey guys I wanna try 2 get a little bigger, although here in long island we've not had such great winters i wanna try. RIght now i do a condo complex and thats it. The super there does sidewalks and has his own plow sooo... I do make a great buck though. I wanna try to pick up some drives and some smaller parking lots. I am willing to do side walks and walkways with the drives. I do not have a sander, think this will affect my chances???? I used to have about 12-15 accounts but it was too much so i sold it and now i wanna get bigger again. Any suggestions? (Note) I have 1 truck with a western and 1-2 other guys with there own plows. most likely my son is going to take over in a 2 or 3 years and I wanna start him on a good note.

    Well, If you've already been there...what the hell do you need us for?

    Suggestion: Pay for Insurance, Bid @ a competitive price, not a low price. Don't ever have contracts where the others (the superintendent) other than your own operation/subs/employees do the work.

    Or course you know more than me, since you used to be "big"

    So how in the hell do you sell another contractors accounts?...

    You did say that you "SOLD" the accounts.

    Hell if I could sell the guy Im subbing for accounts...I'd be a freaking rich man.

    Your story is not adding up...storyteller.
