        I live in the south. I think the whole county has maybe one snowplow...and it sure as hell hasn't been down my road, which is covered in glare ice hiding under the snow. I haven't seen teh roads this bad for YEARS! And No 4WD in my GMC savana.
        I won't risk wrecking a $20,000 truck over a $200 service call.

            You need to come down South Wrench.

            We sit on the porch with sweet tea and barbeque most days.

            1/8" of snow and we go Armeggedon. I've been canning tomatoes, holding the bible, and crying all morning.

              I have no doubt that there are some companies rates that seem much more expensive but may not be as efficient ie. profitable.

              I also have little doubt that you're a good guy, plumber, & that your customers call you because of that.

              But I also have no doubt that the main reason ALOT of your customers call you is because you're cheaper.

              Even though you're very efficient, maybe you should consider increases.

              actually the main reason why they call me is because of my reputation. not my price. people call from referrals, not because they know my price.

              i turn down at least 25% of all calls based on location, time frame, and type of work. price has never been an issue. same reason why i don't waste my time on free estimates. i'll give them a price, but not a free estimate.

              remember what i've always said. plumbing is not a get rich overnight profession.

              33 years and i'm still working on it

                      Its been over 5 years. Remember, you guys have snowplows and salt tucks up there. And I live in the country, my roads are curvy and narrow. Once they get some ice its really bad.

                        It isn't quite that bad over here, but it is blowing around pretty good. I can still see about 1/4 of my driveway through the snow because of that. I would estimate about 6 inches is the highest in some so far. WHUD says north Westchester will only get 8-13, so we'll see how much gets added to that.

                            I love it! He's not kidding one bit. The south is way laid back. Sometimes it gets on my nerves, but other times I appreciate the southern way of things. (which is about 100 times slower then the New York way.)

                              Rick, your price IS part of your reputation. They cannot be separated. All of the people that recommend you will typically include pricing information to friends and family.

                              We all do it. Maybe capitalistic human nature if there is such a thing. People recommend internet tool sellers all the time base on price and service just for an example.

                              It's none of my business if you're the highest company in town or the lowest. But one of the recommendation factors is always price.

                                I will be fighting the ice and snow to go replace a cracked filter housing under a house. Poor guy called yesterday and has been patiently waiting for me without any water. He agreed to my price on the phone (which wasn't cheap) and doesn't want to (or can't) get anyone else to come out.

                                Looks like I'm risking a wreck after all. But this guy will become a customer for life after I rescue him today. A customer for life is worth A LOT!
