    Ran across this.

    Sham Shield Powerwashing is now offering snow plowing and removal in the following towns, Windham area, Vernon, Coventry, Bolton Manchester, South Windsor, Danielson, Putnam, Dayville and Brooklyn for the very low price of $25.00 a pass regardless of the size of the driveway.


    $25 a pass regardless of the size of the driveway.

    How in the world can you make money, maintain your equipement, buy your insurance, gas, salt, etc... doing business like this?

    Define "Pass" ?

    If they are referring to a driveway taking three passes to do the job $75 and its clear then I can see it.
    Otherwise, its their loss..... Remember you can't fix STUPID!!

    If it is $25 per push I wish he travelled further north, I'd have him do my driveway :D
