    Kansas City area,

    We seem to get bypassed all the time for the winter weather so send email or call.

    Have 3/4 ton with extra springs, spreader and straight plow.

    all of the larger companys hire subs. make sure your insurance is up to date and that you have snow pushing insurance.

    I live in Harrisonville down south out n the country where you can pee off your back porch. I do all the sidewalk removal for the company that I work at currently and am looking to add residentials to my list next year as it is non competing with my current employer and he is ok with that.

    Has anybody else on this thread had much luck with acquiring residential accounts.

    I'm 3 hours west of K.C. and it's snowing right now with 25mph wind gusts. Loader is plugged in and ready rock (literally, it has a killer stereo with BOSE speakers). We're supposed to get 2"-4" by midnight. Hope it keeps going your way. It sucks to watch the news every night and see the crazy amounts the guys around the great lakes get regularly !! December was pretty good here, we plowed 5 times and applied de-icer 7 times. De-icer is making up 50% of my billables. You guys have any luck getting property's to go for it ? We even have 2 accounts ask for pre-treatment. It's an easy sell here if you educate the customer on slip/fall liability. My only problem lately is keeping the stuff in stock, we use 50# bags of mag-chlor. We also have a large trucking terminal that some genius built on a very steep hill, a 1/2" of snow shuts them down if we don't de-ice and apply gravel to the lot. We gotta be creative and sell snow removal services at lower trigger depths since we don't get the Buffalo, NY snowfall amounts. Actually personal injury lawyers will eventually do the selling for us !
