    My trigger is also set at 3 inches. I told my accounts to call me if they want me to come and plow for anything less. It's always a nice gesture though to call your customers and ask if they would like you to come.

    We dont have a trigger based on accumulation, " plowing and or salting to occur at the discression of the contractor " We plow and or salt just about every event, based on various factors, time of event, weather forecast, day of the week, the nature of the customers business.
