    After all the waiting and all the "we gave the bid so someone else" responses and all the follow up calls, I finally got a big one...... Its a pita but keep up with the follow up calls guys.

    Way to go! :) Now a little advice and you don't have to take it. Spend the money on top notch equipment and man power and deliver the job as best you can. If you do the job right this will be the first of many big ones. The first year of a new large job usually doesn't yield as much profit as we would all like because of the investment in doing the job far better then the previous contractor could or did. But if you do put in that time and effort the customer should/will love you and new oportunities will open for you. JMHO Good luck and cheers. Doug

    Good advice Doug.

    I actually just got confirmation on 34 new sites this morning because I did just what you stated last year on the 12 trial sites I was awarded.

    Yeah, listen to Doug! Reliability is the name of the game for plowing snow.

    I love closing the Deal. I get more excited doing the deal then I do the snow falling.
