• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Does anybody tack on these fees to people that decide to call you for an estimate, then cancel, and then call you back? The most proffesional way I think to handle people like this is to just give them a higher estimate next time they want a price on anything.

I was refered by a lawnsiter :D and I went out to this home (probably worth about atleast $350,000), and gave them an estimate and then she called and said, "go ahead and do it." I then got a phone call canceling my proposal. The neighbor called and wanted to set his own price for plowing his driveway. Kinda reminds me of the commercial "How do you think I got soooo rich?"

cos, they get one shot. Next time they call, sorry folks my schedule is full.

The night before this last storm, I recieved several calls from folks asking if I would do their property, Im a neighbor of so-and-so, no hurry, whenever you get to it, etc. Two of them were done when I got there. No big deal. I had to be at the neighbors anyway. I sent them a bill for the visit. Dont expect to be paid, but I await the phone call so I can get a kick out of the lame excuses I will get as to why it was done and nobody bothered to call and let me know to not show up. For those two, if there is a next time they will purposely get skipped.
