    Hey there High Roller, Who's "we"? You mean your guys have plowed 11 times...you've plowed what, twice?:D

    I have to ask you guys who are plowing every day/every other day.... Are the rates in your area lower due to quantity, or competition? I have a hard enough time getting people to pay for plowing here, let alone if it was needed 10x as often.

    I can't speak for everyone but I only deal with the top end clients. The hospitals, doctors offices, office buildings, restarurants that have 0% tolerance for the possibility of a slip and fall accident. We won an OSHA award for our service to Kodak for the 04-05 season. They had 21 slip and fall related accidents during the 03-04 season (with a different company), and after the switch to us, slammed down a 0 accident winter, the first in over 25 years!

    We don't work cheap. An average night out just salting is ~$2200-3600 per truck. Most salt only nights I have two trucks out. Myself and an alternating foreman.
