    Well, the directory at Snowplowing-Contractors.com is up to date as of yesterday. I finally added all the services each Contractor provides. I was amazed to see how many don't carry liability insurance. I was also amazed at how many offer snow removal, as in hauling off site in a dump truck, but they don't offer loader service for stacking? I thought I made the registration form clear, but maybe not? Anyone who hasn't registered that wants to be listed in the directory, feel free to register.

    Chuck,
    That is one cool signature. You have too much time to play at the computer ;)

    Maybe the guys that offer hauling have tandems or large dump trucks they use for hauling in their real biz, but don't need a loader for that.

    "Maybe the guys that offer hauling have tandems or large dump trucks they use for hauling in their real biz, but don't need a loader for that."

    True, but how do they expect to get the snow into their trucks for customers, to haul it away? Also, it would be to their advantage to "hook up" with someone who does have loaders, and offer the service. Running tandems, they'd have to know plenty of contractors with loaders!

    Then again, maybe they don't want to bother, even though they can earn cash by subbing the loader work....

    Actually, the signature took about 15 minutes to make.

    There are a lot of trucking companies with lots of tandems with no loaders. Big business in hauling. I was behind 8 tandems today dropping stone for the base of a road construction project. The company hauling the stone was not the same company doing the work at the site. I don't own a tandem or a loader yet so I sub that work out. I get the tandem from one company and the loaders from another company, which is why I guess the fact that you mention a lot of guys just hauling didn't surprise me.
