    Maybe just maybe the tides have turn for the reputable snow removal companies in cental Iowa. Just picked up that very large twn hm project that I posted on the bidding forum a few weeks ago. The last few years we would not have even been close price wise because of all the hacks and low ballers that think they can go out by a plow and start plowing with no knowledge of the industry!!! The PM told me that last year there were over 40 people bidding their properties that they send out to bid on This year 14 are left HOT DAMN. NA NA NA NA , HA HA HA GOODBYE!!!!!Thumbs Up I know you all may not like this but maybe another bad year of no snow fall around here will get rid of the rest of them!!! Maybe it really does pay to be a reliable, dependant, trustworthy, knowledgeable snow removal contactor!!!

    Reputable? Just kidding that is great news. It does pay to be great it just takes some people longer to know it than others.

    Oldmankent, kind of hard for them to be back when most went out of business or found other forms of reliable income.

    GSS LLC. (LOL) I have buttering up to. Them that's no helped in the past.

    BORIS. Thanks sir.

    We haven't haven't lowered our prices ever. If anything ours have gone up rat_power but I know the big boys around here keep lowering theirs. But I think most people are starting to learn that going with the big boys isint always the smart choice finally.

    Nice work.
    We picked up a new one for a new PM we are working for. The had a company that wasn't great servicing a place she asked us to bid last minute. We were $600 (25%) more a month. She said not a problem and signed.
