    Im wondering if anyone had a similar idea as me. I know its illegal to fix prices for customers, but to create a local plow association, that can network with other association to, in a way regulate prices and basically set either a minimum per hr price or a base to work off of. this will prevent any lowballing and we will be getting payed the fair amount for the work we do. similar to a local SIMA mixed with a local business association, were the members would be recognized for being in it, hence getting more local jobs. and also perhaps working out deals with insurances and local dealers to get deals on insurance and supplies.

    Good idea, but will never work. The lowballers haven't done their research so they won't ever bother w/ joining a group that will force them to raise their prices & thus loose some of their lowball-seeking customers.

    No matter what you do the work for someone will always do it cheaper, good idea though.
