    Rates will vary ? Oh, I sort of get it...:confused:

    Varying rates on subs isn't fair, based upon experience and they're equipment ?


    When I hire employees, I do the same thing, but I guess it doesn't apply in hiring subs....

    How about explaining your theory ?


    Thanks GV !Thumbs Up

    Why isn't varying rates for subs fair? We certainly pay a guy quite a bit more who has several years of experience with a wideout plow on his truck more than a first year plower with a 7' blade. Why wouldn't that make sense?

    I have one truck available for hire. 2010 F350 v10 w/ 8' straight blade. Both truck and operator are extremely reliable. Operator has 10+ years experience. Questions:1) Do you offer set hours/guarantees? 2) if not what is the average time spent per event? Thank you in advance.

    We pre-assign work to you prior to the season start which will keep your truck busy for the storm.

    Hello,
    I am a sub out of middlesex county. I have a 3500 with a 7'6" plow and a skid steer with a 8'6" snow box/plow. Let me know if you have anything available in my area. We are fully insured and very reliable. Owner operated and equipment is new.

    Thank you
