    Would anyone in the Rochester area consider helping another small company who only has one plow? I am have had great success in marketing but I am unable to hire support.

    Well I put out 500 mailers and have 57 signed contracts. Everyday I get more calls. I was hoping to team up with someone local so I can continue to say yes to my customers. My worry is that if I say I'm full then I will loose people to my local competition and loose lawns next spring. If I uses some on on my side of town they might screw me and take my customers for themselves next year driving down the price. I am in Henrietta

    ReallyI am just trying to get a sense of who is out there and willing to help each other. There are times when I could use a hand or get together and bounce ideas about the business. I think there is value in having support. Where I am strong someone else might need help.

    Well I only have 10 customers right now. I am still looking to handle another 10 customers to give me a total of 20. So if would like to pass along a potential customer my way it would be appriecated. Or if you need a back up.

    What area are you working? I do have a few I can't get to because they are on River Rd. Too far for me.

    Handyman, The area I cover is; East side of Goodman st. north of 490 and south of Rt. 104 and as far east to Rt. 250 in Penfield. I hope it explains my area. River Rd. is too far for me too.

    I was kidding about Hooters, it will do just fine. I think an area wide meet would be great. When would be a good time for everyone? I'm thinking Tuesday or Wednesday around 7pm?

    I am still waiting to see if anyone else is into a local powwow. Nothing serious just local support for single truck operations.

    Got that right man! Sleep during the morning so I don't have to deal with being tired all night.. :nod:

    Just got this email from one of my customers ( Note he has a per trip contract for the season 16'wide x 700' long drive with huge hill at the end):

    "Steve,

    Just wanted to thank you for the excellent plow service you have
    provided us so far this season. Despite the fact that we have not had a big
    dumping yet, our steep driveway is still a hassle with even minimal
    snowfall. We appreciate the great service you have provided so far and
    for getting it done early in the morning before we head to work.

    Our previous plow contractor would not have even showed up yet if we
    still had him.

    Thanks,

    Mike"


    Rochester guys.. better provide good service. I'm slowly taking over EVERYTHING :drinkup: :drinkup:
