Good Evening,

I went the last month or so with no contacts or leads on contacts for snow removal. Then, in the last day, I netted 9 properties. All with home owners for seasonal contracts.

Pretty happy about that.

Good night all!

A great source of snow plow info is www.plowsite.com.


Getting local customers is ALWAYS a good thing.

Good Morning,
I figured I would wake up to a white gold covered world but still no snow. Oh well. Still very pleased with the contracts.

If you don't mind telling,I have always thought about doing seasonal contracts with home owners.How many storms do you base that on?

I base it on 5 minor storms and 2 big storms. I figure a trip out to each property 1-2 month. All of these are relatively small driveways and sidewalks too.

Snow

We don;t do plowing we just have a couple of snow blowers. It is the same as with everything else as soon as we are done we are paid with the exception of 3 customers. They just have me bill them at the end of the month for whatever we did.
The first year we did 4 properties, last year 10 and now for this year we are up to 20 properties. Not counting the ones my wife gets. Everytime it snows she goes on Facebook and picks up a couple of calls from friends.

We do six figures plowing but its a big headache,subs,loaders,cost of diesel always spikes a couple extra bucks in the winter.

I am at the end of my 3 years contracts so next year we will downsize snow plowing operations.

Gas/Diesel prices difference between winter of 2008-2009 and 2011-2012 are roughly $1.40 per gallon. I sub for a major snow removal contractor and get $95 per hour per truck. Plowing only no salt. I don't really track to the penny how much my fuel is but on a major storm last year when we plowed for about 20 hours I used about 3/4 tank (or 24 gallons) of diesel in my f350 cc dually. So 24 gallons x $1.40 would be a $33.60 increase over 2008-2009, I hardly think a $33.60 increase on $1,900 worth of work would cause anyone to have a non profit year!

Big Daddy you are doing good.


I only get $100 being the main man.


On the plow forum subs are getting as low as $35 an hr. Most are $50 and above.
All I can say is good for them. This boy aint doing that!
