    Do you guys do a big loop, or take care of the GOOD clients first.

    Scheduled loop for each team. Loops rotate the start point so every customer is alternatively early in the loop than later in the loop the next storm. As fair as we can be.

    So you want to drive around to do your better clients, then drive around again to plow your not so better clients?

    I dont know about you, but I dont make $$ driving between clients, the least driving I can do and the more plowing the more $$ I make.

    I route it out as the priorities accounts first (businesses, restraunts), then the ones that wont really care as long as it is done within a reasonable time. Same for res. seasonal customers (already paid) come first.

    I do a large loop from my place going east, south, west, north. Saves gas.

    I always assign routing to each truck, and have a standard policy that clients can call on the mobile phone if there is an emergency or unusual schedule. 90% have not abused the courtesy, and those that do more than once get a 25% upcharge for priority service.
