    So my brother has 16 trucks with his scaping biz and his packed solid with snow contracts. I have 3 and am finding it hard to get commercial biz. I try to contact commercial prop managers and they say no solicitation. Placed ads here and there, NOTHING! Got newer trucks with plows and spreaders in Northern, VA. Plus my brother is a certified Meyer distributor and mechanic so my trucks will never be down.

    Any ideas on how I can try to line contracts up'd be much appreciated.

    PS. Fun site you all got here.

    well friend, this is exactly how this industry should work. your brother has spent all year maintaining these properties and building a relationship they trust. nothing chaps my ass more than when we lose a landscape client to someone else not in the business for the snow.
