    I understand the comments with a sinister grin, but IMO that's thinking ahead if you have to dispatch somebody to the site that's never been there before......we got an emergency call for a church daycare yesterday, the lost the brakes on one of their trucks and the engine in the other hours later....this lot was burined under 8" of snow when i drove over to speak with the guy to find out what and where he wanted the snow moved, and i was extra anal in "spots" since i did'nt know what was what underneath.

    I get the sarcasim though, but actually it's a wise move since i have no vested interest in the loss of your account so i can see it for what it is;)

    I never have a problem losing an account,they come and go because they want to see if they can save money. I had this one on and off for the past 8 years.

    Got something against a picket fence GV? :laughing:

    Have you ever plowed a 6" snowfall, or any storm with wind?

    I had an account for a decade, new manager took over and cried about my $10 increase in price to keep the margin where it needed to be for us, which based on annual plowable event averages for this place was only $100 more at the end of the winter....and i lost it because another new guy was willing to do it at my old price. At first i was like, "are you serious? for the past 10yrs you've never walked through snow ever on the property since we have it done prior to doors opening and customer hours, and your going to let me go over $100?"

    Well, the new guy that got them put them low on the priority list since i drive by there on my route anyhow, it seems 10-11am is the time they tpically get a rusted ole truck on site to clear it....they open for business at 7am.

    If they're that dumb, let'em be. Go find better customers, they're out there.

    Wow too many stalks.

    There could be reason why he is tired of repair plow mount or pivot on A frame from hit curb.

    You can plow that circle with the plow down and not hit anything.

    I heard it's his first year plowing so I guess he don't want to hurt the curbs with his new plow.

    Anyway...The new guy doesn't even set stakes up right. I could use 1/3 of those and mark more effectively. Plus wood stakes look cheap...especially 50mil of them..
