this is the first winter where it seems to be a good business to be in...since about 2002...usually we get about 5 plowable snowfalls yearly...and unless you have commercial accts, it's not worth it. with that being said, a good friend's dad owns a plowing business...commercial accts only, and he grosses $80k/season in contracts!!! wow
the last 3 days though could've been great...every residential wouldve needed 2-3 plows at at least $20 a piece...and i i know i could sign up about 25 of our lawn customers...sooo....maybe $1200-$1800 in the last 3 days
cost of 4x4 truck vs. 2wd we have, plow, wear n tear, add'l insurance etc etc just doesnt seem worth it
