    Hello everyone,
    Looks like we are raising prices this season, spesialy with gas @ $3 per galon, so what we will charge this year? I'm thinking at least $20 per trip on call, $250 per seasonal contract of 15 trips, I would love to get $100 per mounth with 5 mounth contract totaling $500, that just not hapening here in rochester. I seen flyer for unlimited season plowing at $179 !!!! Is that LOW BALING or what?

    Get your price don't worry about the other guy.I raised a couple of places $200.00 per month. With the cost of fuel and ins the raise is needed. I did tell them i am willing to lower my prices when fuel goes down.What if diesel goes to 4.00 per gallon?. I normally don't raise my prices that often, we in a new ball game.As for low ballers they won't show up when it costs 160.00 to fill there tank.

    gas-hike clause

    Hi Vitaly,

    I put a clause in my contract that raises the rates if we go over $3.00, then again at $4.00, shoot me if it goes over $5 :gunsfiring:

    BTW I still haven't done the porch yet :(
