    Yeah, its the same around Grand Rapids. The only good thing is though, that the development is going nuts, with lots of new accounts available all the time for those who want to grow.

    I get sick of all the price shoppers though. People have so many choices they could just take the low bidder and have a new guy every year for a lifetime.

    I am always amazed at how low some of the bids are that we go up against.

    I know what you mean about low bidders.
    We got guys around here doing drives for
    $6-8 belive it or not.Check this Bill Kapps
    restaurants for $15-20 don't think so.
    Saw something on TV 8 news about plow guys.
    Don't you guys need kind of license from the city or something to plow? We don't here,maybe thats part of the problem.
    Around here you got a plow truck,your in business.Something wrong with that picture.

    can't belive it they would have to do mega drives and commercial just to pay for there gas.Well i would point out to any one on these guys for insurand if they damage something and there prompness to be there when needed .What I would do is have some one hire those cheap guys but give them a contract and if not carried out repo their trucks as part of the contract.:)
