This is my first post on Plowsite. Need a little help. Currently snow plow 40 drive ways. 30 of them are on year round contract with me. They pay so much a month for snow plowing to grass cutting and fall clean ups etc. I have alot of contract renewals coming up in the next 3 weeks. My average driveway is 35.00 per clearing X 12 clearings. So each customer pays $ 350.00 for their winter service. My concern is this... that in the past in major snow storms it takes a lot longer to do any driveway and the customer still pays the same amount. This year for the renewals coming up I want to add an additional fee to the winter service 2"-4" snow depth included in contract or maintenance agreement 4"-8" snow depth an extra charge of 20.00 will be invoiced seprately 8" + snow depth an extra charge of 35.00 will be invoiced separately Does this sound fair? During the winter we may never get a big snow fall . I've always heard other guys in the business complain when we get a big snow storm. They always say that they work harder and don't get paid for that extra work.....as well as the fact that its harder on equipment. I MUST ADMIT I DON'T LIKE STORMS EITHER . I've had these customers for over 5 years and some 10 years. I just don't want to Lose A FULL TIME CUSTOMER because of an extra charge. My gut feeling is that they won't mind. I've always been there and have proved myself in the worst of storms. Please any advice. What do you think of my extra fee's and the snow depth increments. THANKS IN ADVANCED.
