    :dizzy: Lots of activity in our area. Got to meet and talk with more than a few of you.
    This might be a chance to see if some of you/us would like to do a meet n greet, swap cards, #'s etc.
    Unfortunately I cannot organize as I am time challenged.
    I have a 9yr old son who is autistic + 3 more and free time :laughing::laughing: is not in my vocabulary. I will attend any meeting that gets set up.
    Contacts are priceless a 3am and somethings broke.
    We are all afraid of losing contracts to each other but the fact is " If your customer is happy with your service" they won't jump ship.

    If only the problem would be that there are not enough of us to supply the demand ? I agree with you Black, a meet n greet would be advantageous to all of us. All east end guys welcome ! Anybody east of downtown ?

    Price


    Wouldn't it be nice if the going rate was 25% higher for driveways.
    If 90% of the companies had $350 as a single drive price that would be the going rate.
    That you could get more than $75 a season to shovel a huge friggin walk 15x each season.
    That the city would actually post a time that city plows went out at, and where they were on their runs at such n such time.

    I saw ads for $300 plow and shovel for season, I'd be over $420 and I believe it should be $500.
