    How often do you guys go out? Every 3 or 4 inches?

    My triggers are set at 2 inches. So I go out every two inches unless they are only calling for 3 then I wait till it's done.

    How often I go depends on the storm. if we get over 2 inches I go and plow a path for my customers to get out by 7 AM. I then go back to do the cleanup, or plow another path for them to get in at 5 PM.


    I charge by the storm $xx.00 for 2-8 inches and by the inch for over storms over 8 inches

    I also have 19 seasonal customers.

    I like to go out for 3-4 every night!

    As for plowing anything over 2 inches out the door.

    I wonder if they think that when they buy three half gallons of milk at the store, they should only be charged for two?? :dizzy:

    I tell people like that to just find someone else... see ya!

    Those people shouldn't have to pay the car wash every time they run their car through, either...It's not their fault that it rains and their cars get dirty...it's an act of nature.
