    Grosse Pointe, Harper Woods, Saint Claire Shores.....

    and it was snowing REALLY HARD, like a "Mudder Trucker", but its off and on now... i dont think it'll stick

    let me ask... what time do you guys start to do the residentals at? 5am?

    last year, when I was 15, I had to do it by shovel, and got the cops called on me at 3 or 4am because the neighbors were complaining i was making to much noise!!!!!

    If any one ever need a hand on a just salt night then i have a 5 yrd dump salter out for hire.....

    i normally just take the dump truck out for my salt route but if someone was in need of some help then i could send my pick-up out to do my route and help you with the dump.....Or the other way around iif you have a small route that could be done with a v-box then i could send that out and just use thhe dump for my route.

    rates would be determaned by how much windshield time i had between sites.

    im pretty much packed on plow nights.

    give me a call......cell 734-260-2203
    office 734-525-3660

    That is great. I am plowing Plymouth Green offices at 23 & Plymouth for WH Canon. Trying to get a vbox so I can salt too. What are the Hours for Wolverine? Are they not there at night when the precip is falling?

    Dexter eh? That is right by me.

    I'd call yourself to confirm the Hr's during storms or Holidays. 2 years ago we plowed on Christmas Eve night through Christmas day and i don't think they were open.Last year prices on a yard of salt was $60.00
    After the sorry snowfall we had last year i hope we get 2" a day for 60 days straight!Hell i'd do Bass Tournaments all summer :drinkup:

    Hope everyone has a happy,safe and trouble free season!
