    Anyone going to team up with the big national snow removal companies this season? Just a random thought as I sit here and write snow bids.

    Not a chance. I am already tired of phone calls from maintenance companies. These are the same companies that call every year wanting you to do their leg work and then tack on their share. I used to fall for this, getting excited, going out to look at the jobs, and you never seem to get the bids. These guys don't even have the contracts. They just hope to find subs in your area so they can bid the jobs, and hopefully they'll pick up the work. Later you find out, 3 of your buddies bid the same jobs for the same company that never landed the contract anyway.
