Good Morning all fellow snow plowers, I am contacting you all this morning on the community portal to state one simple fact & ask for your help & assistance regarding the cost increases we will incur this upcoming winter season. Fuel has increased (as of today) 55% from last winter & all materials are much higher than we are usually used to. I received a bid from a large corporation this morning (I won't say who), but they are trying to get us to commit to last year's pricing. This is NOT right; we have to stick together & make sure we at least get our cost increases covered in our 2022-2023 bids. If we start accepting these bids at these low amounts, or at last year's pricing, we are going to be screwed. Basically, I am asking for us all to come together & make sure we implement an increase across the board on all of our bids to ensure we cover our costs & don't go bankrupt by mid-season. Does anyone agree? What are your thoughts? How do we get the word out to the new & very young companies? Please assist & chime in. I'd really like to hear what you all have to say about this.
