    i had a new one, call yesterday and i went over looked at the lot and then went in and bid it high, and i got it! HUH, then one of the boys plows the lot comes bak to HQ and shows me this pic he took with his camera (everyone carries one) Kyle went in and told them about the damage and they said "that's why we called you" (use to be the landscaper)

    so now i know why i got the contract, but i don't know how it got damaged?

    i think i am higher than everyone else but everyone knows what kind of quality we do, so our client list is growing, last year we picked up about 7-8 comm's after the 24" and this year we picked up 5-6 after the ice

    anyone else picking up work this year, from other plower's neglect?

    first storm last year i took one from another landscaper the guy called and said one storm he had 5 lawsuits 3slip&falls and 1 accident involving 2 people, and wanted me to clean the mess up, i didpayup , this year they were the first one to return a contract

    the legal aspects involved with plowing BLOW...

    I guess a strong contract is your only bit of security

    Looks like it got back into. Probably some careless A-Rod doing a 100 in reverse and slamming on the brakes and miss judged the wall and slid into it.

    We've been getting alot of extra work in Chicago region. Started with about 60 lots now have about 100. Guys doing well except with the minor details on some of the pickier clients.
