    Well this year I have had people give me their accounts and give up plowing, well just one quit, anyway my phone has been ringing once or twice a week for snowplowing quotes (without advertising). So far I have picked up five more accounts and am currently working on a large bid that called in late but for a ten to fifteen G account I'll make some accommodations. I hope you all do fine this year.

    Good luck there, DJ. I'm in the same situation - a major player got out of the business. Now his customers are calling for quotes. Problem is, he was really, really low and now his customers are getting "sticker shock".

    Murray83 we will be very busy this year and I just sold my old 87" plow truck sure wish i still had it, but for right now I have a friend that said he would help me and a brother in-law that is looking for a truck.

    Mick I had the same problem with the low fees, however I told them that this is one of the reasons the other contractor had to give up his snowplowing bit and the other was he did not carry insurance. So I assured him that the he would be getting quality work from everyone of my workers.
