    I've come to the conclusion my business is taking a new direction ..
    There was a time, I'd offer plowing services at a discount rate, this year driveways start at 35$ 2x2 anything else, rates vary .....

    Current clients will be notified of price increase, if their paying $25 it's now $35 All current commercial lots won't be affected...

    This may cause a loss of clients, which I'm comfortable with. This is a business and will be treated as such. Anyone else changing policy this new year...?

    All seasonal here. I just bump the price up every year and never had a problem with it.

    Smart move. You'll lose some, but you'll gain others. The important thing is you'll make some money for your efforts now.
